DESRON DESDIV Destroyer Squadrons & Divisions

Recommended Posts

Not a patch, but a three war veteran plaque.....

 

Destroyer Squadron One, Destroyer Division 11

 

USS PERKINS (DDR-877) 1944-1973

Watchdog of the Pacific

 

Painted ceramic on Philippine mahogany

. Just noticed this one! My Dad was EM1 on Perkins '62-'63. Interestingly, when our son was in "A" School in Pensacola, his best buddy's grand paw was EM2 on Perkins at the same time. My dad remembered him.

Destroyer Escort Squadrons are a bit more difficult to come by than DESRONS

 

Beautiful 5 1/2" 1960'S Gemsco still in the wrapper from a USS COURTNEY (DE-1021) veteran

 

CORTRON 10 based in Newport R.I. - served primarily in the Med and Atlantic (2nd and 6th Fleets)

Here's a DESRON 17 Patch I found today, I've seen two versions so far in this thread. Any idea on the date of mine?

This was my DESRON 13 patch while serving in USS Bradley, FF-1041 from '75-'79 Not as nice as my Dads, and bought in the ships store, Do not remember what brand, most likely Gemsco. As I recal, they supplied pretty much all ships jacket patches then.

 

Ahoy Steve,

 

This is my 1970's era DESRON 13, very similar to yours with the snarling white cat rather than all black
