New gallery additions
« on: February 26, 2019, 08:55:51 AM »
Have been posting many new additions to the SSI gallery. As an older collector I want to help preserve the history. I kind of feel the hobby has not only a larger number of older collectors (in all collecting areas) but a growing number of younger ones. When I started collecting back in 1977 I had no idea of the various unit histories. New nothing of Fighter Bomber units, Air Transport Squadrons, etc.
I thus call on all of us to start posting the "gems" of your collection. I feel this will generate more interest. I personally feel it is my obligation to preserve history in this manner. I am posting this great 6" P-2 Neptune era Patrol Squadron 18 patch as an example. Plus every patch I own is on my webpage. Thank you.

This emblem it would seem was used by both VP-661 & VP-56. I think this is Korean Conflict era. Any light that can be shed on this subject will be greatly appreciated.
