I enjoy actually thinking I have them all. it gives me some satisfaction knowing it is possible to collect a whole "set". this is the case with the DEG's, there were only 6 in this class of ship they later became FFG's but for know I have the whole "set" enjoy.

I remember the first 3 were out of San Diego and Pearl. I went aboard USS Bradley (FF-1041)a month after the "Name Change" from DE yo FF. The "Brooke" class was exactly the same shop with the exception that the DEG had the aft 5 in, 38 cal replaced with a missile launcher. I remember steaming with Schofield often, but Brooke always seemed to be broke down. We called her the USS "Broke".

Aloha Bearmon,

 

Thanks for posting the Brooke class guided missile escorts, they were on my 'i'll get around to it' list.  Here are the other ones you need for the set.  If anyone has others for these six ships, please post them for us.

USS RAMSEY DEG/FFG-2 - the FFG patch is a Swiss-Tex circa 1975.  

They were ordered cellophane wrapped in a carton without the Swiss-Tex printing on the cards (same size card and package as the printed products)

. Sometimes, patches just "Changr". When I was on USS Henry B. Wildon, DDG-7, the background of the ships patch just CHANGED. No reason, the manufacturer just made a change. What was really interesting was that at the same time, we got a shipment of "Zippo" ships belt buckles at about the same time. They were muss stamped to read USS Henry B. Wilson DOG-7! They flew off the shelves!
