The VF-60 emblem has a wolf in tux/hat sitting atop a fighter aircraft, wolf holding large club with spike in it , behind aircraft is the shape of the american aircraft fuselage emblem on a round ringed background/border , my image is fuzzy and I'd sure love to find a clear image .....................................

Also VT-60 emblem...............................

Please send me your email address.  I'll send jpeg files for the VF-60 patch and the VT-60 patch.  My father was the one who requested Disney Studios to create the patches.  I'll send the details to you.  I also have photos of Airgroup 60, VT-60 and VF-60 taken August 26, 1945 in Hilo, Hawaii.  Cornwell is in the the group and VF-60 photos.
