It is not Pagasus, Pagasus was a flying horse and that thing has the body of the Philippine sea lion (front half lion back half fish) but with a horse's head and wings. Very strange indeed.

I think it's from 1954, but will try to read the actual NAN issue to verify it. I've seen other chain stitched patches from WW2-early 1950s. FASRONs were established in Dec 1946 and disestablished in 1959 according to most of the info I've found so far. Jeffro

I think it's from 1954 but could be earlier. I read the actual NAN issue to verify it, but it did not describe the patch as a new design for 1954. Instead, the insignia page described it as one of the squadron insignia belonging to one of several of the Navy's "workhorses". I have found information indicating that the unit was called Mobile FASRON 121 prior to it's re designation as FASRON121 in 1954. That was from some of the "Shipmates History" posts on the VP Navy site. I've seen other chain stitched patches from WW2-early 1950s. FASRONs were established in Dec 1946 and disestablished in 1959 according to most of the info I've found so far. Jeffro
