The first half varies with Knife2.png Identified with a Tradition, and the second half varies with Clouds.png The Airs of London.

Knife2.png Identified with a Tradition Badge Display
The School of Hard Knocks You hold up the badge as though about to put someone under arrest.
The Forms of the Tomb-Colonies You defend yourself with your main and flourish the badge with your off hand.
The Adventuress' Correspondence Course You flourish your badge as though it were an explosive you're about to throw: it's one way to get their attention.
Your Own Fighting Style You let your badge catch the lamplight from the Helmsman, so the nearest brawler can see it plainly.
Clouds.png Airs Opponents' Reaction

25 - 94 "Constables!" shouts one of the brawlers. "There's Constables here!" This causes a general consternation. Several of your opponents do not stop to acquaint themselves with the truth of the situation: they simply run for it.
97 - 100 "Keep your irons away from me," […] "Last time I was locked up, it were back on the Ungulate. Before your time, that would've been! And I never fancied seeing the inside of New Newgate."

[…] he removes himself from the fight with dignified haste.

You alarm no one. The badge is knocked from your grip, it takes you a moment to retrieve it, and the brawlers don't seem to fear any Constabulary help you might have at your disposal.
