The item you are bidding on is a full color poster pertaining to the US Navyâe(tm)s first 41 Fleet Ballistic Missile Submarines . I created this poster in 1981 when I worked at the Submarine Force Library & Museum in Groton , CT and recently reprinted a small amount of them.. The poster measures 19âe x 28âe and is printed on heavy coated paper, suitable for framing. The colors and photos of the patches and submarines are clear, bright and sharp (not fuzzy as in the scan). The posters contain the patch and a portrait of the man the submarine is named after and photographs of the first of each of the four classes of Fleet Ballistic Missile Submarines at the time. This poster is a unique historical document and sure to please any submarine memorabilia collector.
