WWII Harbor Net Tender Qualification Badge with Bars

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine found this a few years and promised it to me. He wanted to hang on to enjoyed for a wile. Well he passed it on to me last week and I wanted to share it. This is the only on I've ever seen. The bars are Coast Art , Submarines , & Mines.

Wow. Just wow. I wonder if the sailor took the standard sterling pin we sometimes see to a jeweler or had one specifically designed. And three rare bars to boot! Thanks for showing.

It looks like a standard period Army qualification badge with the Octopus disc applied by a jeweler. It's not sterling and it has the normal pin back style fastner. The Submarine bar looks like it may have been made special. The other bars are the usual kind. Sorry I could not post pictures.

Does it say "Submarines," or "Submarine Mines?" Those are two different things. I thought the Army controlled command detonated mines as part of its harbor defense duties. Hence the Army minelaying vessels with their sea going soldier crews.
