Commander Escort Squadron 3 purchased on forum many years ago about 11 inches across

 

 

Interesting patch, but with the Gator, "bullet" and the Oak Leaves I'm thinking it's related to supply or logistics

 

Here's the same patch on one of Bob's topics http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/195265-vietnam-era-navy-patch-glsr-3/

Edit: Those oak leaves certainly could just be smoke and the gator a dragon.......having a random thought day

If I understand your question, you want to know if Fakes are being made of large size patches too, the answer would be almost everything is faked. it pays to know what good patch construction looks like and what modern computer generated stitching looks like.

Hi Bearmon, yes my Q was about that and your reply is "sad" but likely real. Thanks

 

 

What he said. The Japanese ones are harder to reproduce, the quality was very good on those.I would

research vietnam fakes, there are a couple of good threads on the subject. Best defense is education.

US Naval Advisory Group Detachment Chinhae, South Korea 1962 1963

 

10" x 8" Advisor patch

 

PS - Duffy's Tavern at NAG Chinhae was the watering hole for the Pacific Fleet Salvage forces for over 40 years (cheap booze, slot machines, 'hostesses' and live stateside bands, plus a pin monkey bowling lane and small theater)

 

Fleet Activities, Chinhae had its origin as a US Naval Advisory Group in 1946. The Command was subsequently established as a detachment of the Naval Component of the US Naval Advisory Group for the Republic of Korea. Upon reorganization in July 1969, the Command became the first Fleet Detachment, Naval Station, Joint US Military Advisory Group Korea (JUSMAG-K).
 
In 1972, the Command was reorganized as the Chinhae Facility. US Naval Forces Korea and Fleet Detachment, Naval Section, JUSMAG-K broke out to become a tenant activity. The activity, renamed in 1972 as Field Logistics Center, Chinhae, was disestablished in 1988. The Chinhae Facility was reorganized as Commander, US Naval Forces, Korea Detachment, Chinhae in 1978. Reorganization in 1984 established Commander, Fleet Activities Chinhae with Commander, US Naval Forces, Detachment Chinhae as a tenant activity.
