    This appears to be the emblem of the Royal Naval Association/Royal Navy Old Comrades Association. See the following links:

    I would imagine the patch displays his membership to the Association, but unfortunately doesn’t give any further detail what vessels he served on etc. As an American, I’m not sure what state the UK archives from this period are in or how one could access them to explore records (or submit a request?) regarding your father-in-law’s service, but I imagine there are resources…perhaps within this very group? See the “Special Interest Groups” page on the Royal Naval Association’s website and there’s contact info for a group called “Insignia and badges.” Perhaps you will find some leads there?

    Best,
