Roseholme Redux

I went looking for Tudor Rose artwork with an eye to making a stencil for Roseholme Cottage and found this:
The symbol is now used extensively within countries of the former British Commonwealth, as well as those remaining in it, to denote a professional intelligence organisation.
So, it's black ops and intel all the way down, then?

::sigh::

Good thing I have my cloak and dagger right handy.

The flat disk on a turtle sounds like Terry Pratchett's premise. Maybe thats where he got the idea.

Every time I hear that expression "It's turtles, all the way down". I always wonder, down to what?

More turtles!

That's the point.
