New Patches

AIMM has received two new patches in the museum store:

The first patch was used after Razorback came out of the shipyard in 1962 with her “new”, tall “North Atlantic Sail”. This patch has never before been available to general public.

With the addition of this patch, AIMM now has all five patches from Razorback’s career as well as the patch from her career as the Turkish submarine Murat Reis.

The second patch is AIMM’s official patch.

Show the world you support AIMM!

Both patches are $5.00 each and are available from the museum store.
