Current SUBRON 3 patch, Submarine Squadron Three, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii

 

How do you identify them when there is no wording on the patch?

  • In general terms (there are always exceptions), if you see a pennant or number in BLUE or a Roman Numeral, it's a Submarine Squadron as shown in this example.
  • If you see a pennant or number in RED, it's a Submarine Division as shown in the first post (Submarine Division 32).
  • The first number is the Squadron (3) and the second number is the Division 3(2). i.e. SUBDIV 32 (voiced as 'three-two', the Second Division of SUBRON THREE)
  • For Squadrons and Groups, (NOT Divisions) Odd numbers are Pacific Fleet units, Even numbers are Atlantic Fleet units.

....And here's an exception to the rule

 

SUBRON FIFTEEN - The number is in Red, but it obviously has wording identifying it as Submarine Squadron 15, Pacific Fleet (Pearl Harbor, Guam, North Pacific Ocean)
