Table of Contents

The patch is a customized emblem designed specifically for a particular organization. An emblem is often displayed on patches, decals, plaques and other memorabilia. Pride and comradery in the crew is a direct result of the patch as a daily reminder that a specific unit is the best in the Navy.

In the past, patches were designed by and for the unit members. Although not approved by Navy Regulations until the 1950s, for Unofficial use only, Navy units have proudly displayed their patches since World War II.

Today, patches are both Official and Unofficial. The Official version has either been designed or approved by the Naval Board of Heraldry, with each element and color of the design having a specific meaning.

This is the sixth in a multi-volume set covering Navy patches from World War II to the present - each volume contains over 1000 patches in full color.

This volume covers submarine patches. The index allows for easy accessing of specific units, ships, etc. Volume one covers individual carriers, carrier air wings, and support establishments. Volume two covers individual aircraft, attack squadrons, and helicopter squadrons. Volume three covers fighter squadrons, strike-fighter squadrons, and reconnaissance squadrons. Volume four covers command and support units, and miscellaneous formations. Volume five covers battleships, cruisers, destroyers and other surface ships.

Michael L. Roberts is a retired Chief Aviation Machinists Mate. He resides in Long Beach, California.

Over 650 patches in full color
