ARVN Navy Advisory Pocket hanger? Can you ID?

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired this with a theater made River Assault Squadron 15 patch. Does anyone know what this pocket hanger represents?

 

Thank you,

Vance

It'll be a Vietnamese Navy Training School or the like usually worn by U.S. Advisors while within the school to denote them as an instructor/advisor. Kinda like a hall pass worn while on the property to show you belong there.

Bob, that's right.....I glossed over that detail.

 

Worn as a pocket hanger because they were usually there for a short time on temporary/intermittent duty.

That is rather uncommon, especially with the anchor signifying Navy.

Agreed.....I couldn't find a match in all my scans.

drewchaneyaustralia,

 

Vintage Productions had one for sale, but unfortunately it sold this morning. It's odd, bringing up an old topic like this makes it hot again.....(let's start talking about 9th ID aviation assets).
