This is an original patch from the collection of Jim Millholland. Jim worked at the Mare Island Shipyard for 34 years as a Planner and Estimator. The first submarine he worked on was the USS Catfish. Later he worked on the Bashaw, Barbel, Blueback and many to follow. His work and love for the Navy encouraged his hobby of collecting patches. He specialized, but not limited, in submarine, ships and support activity patches. He did not collect reproductions. He spent over 40 years assembling one of the largest collections around. Now, this patch is being offered to you at auction on Ebay. A chance to acquire an original patch like this one doesn’t come around often.
