Really nice 11" diameter Tractor King patch. Used but still in good shape.

 

I believe this one is from the USS Enterprise CVN-65 westpac cruise.

 

This is a pretty unique patch. The tractor King is a young Petty Officer (usually E-5) who is in charge of all the tow tractors on the flight deck. He wears a yellow jersey and blue float coat and blue helmet.

Here is a picture of a group of four tractors on the flight deck. If you notice the "Tractor King" is the driver of the second tractor from the left. Ready to go during recovery of aircraft.

USS MISSISSINEWA (AO-144) Flagship of Commander Service Force 6th Fleet, Naples, Italy (SERVRON 6)



With Naples as her home port, the tanker cruised the Mediterranean servicing the 6th Fleet in normal and crisis operations until 1964. During the fall of 1956 and early winter 1957, she supported 6th Fleet ships as they stood by in case they were called on to intervene in the Suez Crisis and the tense period that followed. Again, in mid‑July 1958, she got underway on short notice to provide logistic support to ships of the 6th Fleet during an emergency in the Middle East, this time in Lebanon. Remaining off the Lebanese coast until September, she refueled over 200 ships as the U.S. 6th Fleet landed the U.S. Marine Corps and then stood by at the request of President Chamoun of Lebanon, in "Operation Blue Bat". From 1962 to 1964, Mississinewa's responsibilities were increased as she served as flagship of Commander Service Force, 6th Fleet.



GUN GANG - 10" custom made patch, Italian made. Note the Pirate Flag & the Island nation of Cyprus, scene of the "Cyprus Crisis"

A different style of the 9" Asahi Beer cruise patch - no date, one less port, no ships' name

I have a jacket with the top patch, really great even better in person. The other patches on the jacket have no ship names either, do you have any idea why some cruise patches would not have ship names? My guess is that they are souvenirs, even if authentic.
