UNK 17- I played around with this one for quite some time, but I think I have it. ISHAANDEN is Danish for "Ice Hand" which is used to say "my hands are freezing." So, The patch is a mixture of Danish and Latin- "Hand of ice through difficulties to the scrotum."

 

I would say this probably isn't a US patch, but some sort of joke from the Danish contingent to somewhere damned cold. Korea? The Arctic? The South Pole?

A new one which came with an USS PROTECTOR (AGR-11) RADRON TWO patch (In service 1957 to 1965).

These two (2) patches came together, no clear ID on the Scanning Cat but of note, the thread colors and weave match on both patches,  (green, red, yellow, black)

The PROTECTOR is one of the 'Liberty' ships converted to become Guardian class Radar Pickett ships filling the NORAD 'radar gap' during the early years of the Cold War.  For more info:  http://www.yagrs.org/ships.htm

 

UNK 27 THE 'SCANNING CAT' - YAGR or AGR - Cold War Radar Pickett?
