Fox with Hammer Patch ID: USN VP-5 Mad Foxes

Recommended Posts

I went to a sale today but it was the 2nd day of the sale and most of the military stuff was gone. I did find some papers and a patch. I tried searching for Fox Hammer , Fox Hammer Navy and can not find it. Is this patch military? The man was a Navy Pilot from what I can tell. I did find some Kodachrome slides that I need to go through that hopefully have some plane images.

Thanks! I wish I would have went yesterday. They said there was a bunch of military stuff that all sold this morning. I wonder why they did get the paper work and patch but got the medals and such

I looked through the slides and it looks like he was stationed somewhere in Iceland as there are about 100 slides from there but no other military related slides that I could find.

The first slide is a USN Lockheed P-2 Neptune patrol bomber


Prior to the introduction of the P-3 Orion in the mid-1960s, the Neptune was the primary U.S. land-based anti-submarine patrol aircraft, intended to be operated as the hunter of a '"Hunter-Killer" group, with destroyers employed as killers.

I made several of these in leather for the squadron about 10 years ago. They wanted the "buff" fox and even added eyelashes to one.
