...and if you are not familiar with the USS CHOPPER (SS-342) it's worth looking up.

 

She tore herself apart in an uncontrolled vertical plunge and wild broaching that all but destroyed her and placed her out of commission

Here are a couple of USS Triton patches I recently added to my collection.  The shield-shaped patch is by Ace Novelty and the rectangular patch appears Japanese-made as well.

 

DSC05857.JPG DSC05858.JPG

 

Triton was the first nuclear submarine to circumnavigate the globe submerged.  Commissioned in 1959, she was converted from a radar picket boat to an attack boat in 1962, so the one on the left is an early patch.
