41 for Freedom SSB(N) jacket patches

Recommended Posts

The hull for the Scorpion SS(N) 589 was cut and 130' of missle section was added creating the USS George Washington SSB(N) 598 launched in 1959 the first of our nations original 41 ballistic missle submarines. Here are the jacket patches from the 41 boats, Tenders and assorted squadrons,material office and supply ship + missle patches. I am missing several Squadron patches an Atlantic material office patch and I need to know if there was more than one supply ship beside the Norwalk TA K.

I also do not like the Stimson patch, but will find a better one in time.

Some may wonder why I added 2 R E Lee patches, this is because each SSBN has two crews a Gold and a Blue crew.

Any one familiar with this Hunley patch? I think it dates from 1980-81 but not sure.

Here is one more of the SSBN squadron and two ships that supplied the Hunley in Scotland. The Betelguse late was part of a group of AK FBM supply ships which were replaced by a group of T AK FBM supply ships specific to supplying this part of the fleet.

Ahh thanks, that one did not hit my radar. At least I know what it looks like and thank you for adding it to this thread, it fits great. If you ever want to let it go let me know

Took a long time to find this one, short of the TAK's this might be the complete 41 for freedom collection.
