According to Wiki " On 29 March 1915 a number of British aircraft manufacturers and industrialists met to arrange a standards body and production pooling system known as the Society of British Aircraft Constructors. Notable among the aircraft participants were Herbert Austin, Frederick Handley Page, H.V. Roe of Avro, and E.B. Parker of Short Brothers. The group agreed to share their designs among a variety of 3rd party factories in order to be able to quickly produce new designs on demand. These factories joined ones being run by the government directly. In total over 40 companies joined the group when it officially formed on 23 March 1916."

Does anyone know if the organization was originally 'The Society of Aircraft Constructors' or S.A.C. ?

I ask because I've just bought a silver tiepin with a 9-cyliner rotary/radial engine design and two-blade prop, with an enameled blue circle on the engine crankcase with the letters 'S.A.C.' on it.

Or, any other suggestions as to what 'S.A.C.' might stand for ?
