His Majesty King George VI approved a goose volant in December 1937. It was chosen as a play on the word 'Anson', which the Squadron was flying when the badge was being designed, and ‘Anser’ which is the Latin word for Goose. As the goose is a fast day and night flyer and one of the heavier wild fowl, it was deemed appropriate for a Bomber Squadron.
