Destroyer Squadron Badges

Postby MikeJames » 22 Jan 2022 15:47

For use on USS Brumby, I've been researching US Navy Destroyer Squadron (DesRon) badges.

They were commonly affixed to the ship's superstructure sides, and that tradition carries on today, with the DesRon badge carried on the sides of the forward funnels of most of the US Navy's Arleigh Burke class.

For anyone ese building USN ships, here are those I have been able to source. These are generally those in use during the 70s though 90s, and some may have changed slightly today. For example DesRon 2s current is slightly different from the one seen here.

You can download them, print them out to the size needed and then affixed to a plastic backing. Once appropriately waterproofed, you can fix it to your ship and wear your affiliation with pride.

I have a really good copy of the DESRON 2 modern badge as CHURCHILL wears it and the commissioning CO was kind enough to send it through to me. If anyone needs it! great work on getting all these Mike.
