HS9 first time around the squadron was active from 1956 to 1968, this is the first squadron patch and construction looks to be 50's to me,

Enjoy

A Japanese made Helicopter Antisubmarine Squadron 6 Jacket patch worn by then Lieutenant Leonard A. Campbell in 1957. Per his certificate, Campbell qualified as a helicopter pilot on 28 February 1957 and was assigned to HELASRON-6 on 14 April 1957. He left the squadron in 1958.

Here’s a belt buckle from HSL-2 Invaders.

 

I searched online and only find mention of Squadron 32 not 2

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks

Probably an error, the INVADERS were always known as HSL-32

 

History of HSL-32 Invaders
Helicopter Antisubmarine Light Squadron 32 (HSL-32) was established at NAS Norfolk, Virginia, on 17 August 1973, formed from a nucleus of personnel from HSL-30. The Invaders initially were equipped with four SH-2D and four SH-2F Seasprite LAMPS I (Light Airborne Multipurpose System I) helicopters. HSL-32 disestablished in 1994.

HELWINGRES (Helicopter Wing Reserve) USNR - Tail Code "NW": Established Jun 1975, disestablished 31 May 2007.  Remaining reserve helicopter squadrons continue to use tail code NW even though the wing no longer exists.
