Mine Warfare Patches, MSO MSC MCM MCS MINRON MINDIV MOMAG

Recommended Posts

Is this a generic WWII minesweeper patch, or was it for a specific unit or squadron? It belongs to a Carpenters Mate 1/C aboard USS Saunter AM-295. She struck a mine in Manila Bay on 26 Feb. 1945. Crew saved her from sinking but never saw duty again.

Cool design, never seen this one before. I like the END SWEEP design on it. I assume it has something to do with Haiphong & Suez/M.E. area.
