VA-176 Ace Novelty set - I have no doubt that although this one is not tagged it's also an Ace Novelty as it came with the other patches from the same Intruder veteran

AIRASRON FORTY ONE (VS-41) SHAMROCKS - An ASW training squadron for crews of anti-submarine aircraft established on 30 June 1960 as an anti-submarine squadron. The squadron was nicknamed the Shamrocks and based at the Naval Air Station North Island, California

 

VS-41 was originally activated in 1960 to train the crews of Grumman S-2 Tracker anti-submarine aircraft for the United States Navy. Two squadrons equipped with the Tracker were based each on the anti-submarine carriers (CVS) of the Essex-class to counter the threat of the large Soviet submarine fleet. In the mid-1970 both the CVS-carriers and the S-2 Tracker were phased out.

 

First patch (1960's) as a training squadron (note the lamp), and the more familiar SHAMROCKS patch.

I know you had requested for posts on patches with tags but I'm just excited to share a jacket I just picked up with this Gonzo Guzzler patch! Ace Novelty patches are great!

Another USS DWIGHT DAVID EISENHOWER (CVN-69)

 

V-2 DIVISION - THE GREEN SHIRT 'GRIM REAPERS' OF THE CATAPULTS - 6" Ace Novelty, Tokyo

 

CVN 69 USS DD EISENHOWER V2 DIV Ace Novelty 001.jpg

 

The crewmen in Air Department’s V2 Division are tasked with a responsibility to safely launch and recover aircraft on the flight deck. Although they are well known as the quintessential green shirts, few understand the grease and the glory of their unique job.

Although many departments, divisions and squadrons don green jerseys, V2 division is one of the largest on the ship, with more than 200 people from three different ratings: Aviation Boatswain’s Mates (Equipment) (ABEs), Interior Communications Electricians (ICs) and Electrician’s Mates (EMs). ABEs make up about 85 percent of V2. ICs and EMs make up the other 15 percent.
