Unknown NY National Guard DUI in DISTINCTIVE UNIT INSIGNIA / UNIT CRESTS Posted December 23, 2015 According to the J-M 1984 Trading Post, it appears that your DI is for the 52nd FA Bde. That is not a clipper ship on it. Clipper ships were not around until approx 1850 and had nothing to do with NY. It is Henry Hudson's "Half Moon" under full sail. http://dmna.ny.gov/historic/heraldry/arngdui/27thInfDiv52ndFABDE.htm I didn't see that one. Very similar to the NYS Guard DI's.
