INSIGNIA

(1)
VA-55
"TORP CATS"

 Embroidered on Wool Felt . 5" Diameter.
Condition: excellent, soiling, use, no mothing. This is the post-1946 artwork of VT-38. VA-55 was unique in being deployed for all four years in Korea.  Participated in most of the major operations of KW including Inchon. Participated in first naval air strikes of KW against North Korean targets. CVG-19 and ATG -2 deployed on Valley Forge (CV-45), Princeton (CV-37) and Essex (CVA-9).

As the VA-55, the KW Blood Chit and TF 77 (see below) were sewn on at the same time, this patch represents presumably the first deployment of
VA-55 in 1950.
