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.
