What's the font in the Royal Navy logo?

What font is used in the logo of the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom? Obviously the A is custom, but what's the rest of it? The R has a straight leg and the O is circular. It's not any of the usual suspects (Helvetica, Frutiger, Akzidenz-Grotesk, Gill Sans). It's almost Gotham Black, but not quite, and it's driving me nuts! Help!

What font is used in the intertitles of Hitchcock's Champagne?

What font did Alfred Hitchcock use for the intertitles in his 1928 silent comedy Champagne? Sample here. Identifont and WhatTheFont have both failed me. I'm looking for a free replica or close match.

What printed this Certification?

What sort of machine printed this Certification of Birth Abroad? The letters are broken up and stencil-ish, but it's no ordinary dot-matrix printer. [more inside]
