So patch styles varied with these eras?  Please elaborate for me, I'm dense sometimes.

I agree, but I'm a little biased   ;)  I also like the one of the Archerfish.  Rick - is that round wooden Archerfish thingy (technical term) still at the museum?  Maybe you could snap a photo and post it.

Thanks.  I can use these.  You would not by chance have the 681's? 

I will post a pic of the Archerfish plaquard for every one.  This is real cool as you can really tell Disney had some handy work in it.  If you look at the hand it is real obvious.  While we are on the Archerfish.  I like to remind everyone that We still have her tubes.  :)

When everyone looks at that picture look at what the fish has in his back pack, it is a Japanese aircraft carrier.  :2funny:

REQUIN had three (maybe four) different crew patches..

the first was done by Walt Disney studios, the second by a guy who was in REQUIN's first radar-picket/MIGRAINE crew, and the third by a gentleman named Bob "Dex" Armstrong.

Wow I had never seen the Batfish's post-war patch before. And I didn't know Disney did anything with them. Thats really cool. The Disney fact as well as the ships emblems.
