Here is a HM-16 SeaHawk patch. These guys were an airborne minesweeping squadron. They were also the squadron that flew the ill-fated Iranian Hostage rescue mission.

HS-2 (now HSC-12) Golden Falcons Far East "I get around" cruise 1963-64

Hong Kong, Yokosuka, Sasebo, Iwakuni, Kobe

 

'round 'round get around I get around...... 

 

"Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron TWO was established on 7 March 1952 as the first Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) helicopter squadron on the West Coast, flying the HRS-2. Initially used in small detachments, the first deployment as an entire squadron was made in 1957 when the world famous "Golden Falcons," flying the HSS-1, embarked aboard the aircraft carrier USS PHILIPPINE SEA (CVA-47). At this time, the squadron was manned by 258 enlisted and 39 officers to fly and maintain 17 aircraft. Since that time, the squadron has deployed on eight other carriers including USS YORKTOWN (CVS-10), USS HORNET (CVA-12), USS INDEPENDENCE (CV-62), USS TICONDEROGA (CVS-14), USS ENTERPRISE (CVN-65), USS RANGER (CV-61), USS KITTY HAWK (CV-63), and USS NIMITZ (CV-68). Today, HS-2 deploys as a member of Carrier Air Wing TWO (CVW-2) aboard USS CONSTELLATION (CV-64) with 161 enlisted, 24 officers and six Sikorsky H-60 helicopters...."

Plank Owner patch from the very short lived HS-13 Sub Choppers, established in 1961 at Quonset Point - Never deployed, it was disbanded in 1962

The tail rotor is a nice design touch on the patch
