DD DDE DDR DESTROYERS Greyhounds of the Fleet

Recommended Posts

This is one of her Vietnam patches when she was reverted back to DD-876 in 1963, later serving on the gunline, callsign 'Bullseye'

Her nickname was "The Tonkin Tiger" Anyone have the Tonkin Tiger patch to post here?

She later had a 20 year career in the ROKN and is now a museum ship in South Korea

I am using Fast Stone Photo Resizer 3.5. I can reduce image to 90 x 100 and i am still told image is to large! What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, Tom

BEARMON those are some great looking patches. The USS Stickell patches are nice. I had a friend that was on the WILSON in Vietnam.

Nice patches. As for the Stickell DDR patch, it does not show up on Nav source, nor Tin Can Sailors!

The Cone is before 1963. I have a GEMSCO Cone dated 1966 if interested in a trade! 10esee@wk.net

The Stickell patches all came from the same sailor, I am not sure what you mean by it doesn't show up on those two websites,

Thanks for the offer but not really interested on trading that one.

Thanks for looking

I am saying if I do not see it on Nav. source or Tin Can Sailors, the DDE- 888 must be pretty rare!

I actually think it's DDR not DDE. DDR would be a Destroyer Radar Picket ship, lightning bolts.
