Obviously related to nighttime helicopter anti-submarine activities. Radar Training Unit? Replacement Training Unit? Reconnaissance Training Unit? The only references I could find to RTU units were replacement training units form the Army Air Force during WW II.

RTU-84 was located at Imperial Beach with HS-84.  Eventually it apparently became HS-1421.  All USNR anti-sub outfits. RTU was Reserve Training Unit I believe.

Aha! Thank you very much. 'Reserve' was one of the R's I forgot to think about. Also, thank you for the links to their history, I appreciate it.

The typical USNR NARTU patch has the "N A" for Naval Air on them so quite unusual to see only RTU on this one.

Just a note on Naval terminology, NARTU can also be a Naval Air Reserve Transportation Unit vice Training Unit.
