Sabalo "Battle Flag"
              PosterSabalo "Battle Flag" Poster

A similar design was produced for the 2007 Reunion. This version was available for sale at the 2013 Reunion.

The same upper photo is circa 1967, and the background photo in this one was changed from the earlier version.  This one shows Sabalo in her original configuration on her first day 'at sea' in the Delaware River in 1945 with Philadelphia in the background.  A similar image is on the web site at:
http://usssabalo.org/PhotoAlbum01/Sabalo45crpdcmpsdretouchd.jpg

This high quality, printed poster with semi-gloss finish measures 16 1/2" x 21" and is suitable for framing with a suitable border matte in a standard 18 x 24 frame which can be found inexpensively in many stores.

Shown are all the ports-of-call Sabalo visited in her history with the country flags along the top and bottom, and all of the ribbons for awards she accumulated.  Also displayed are various ship's and squadron patch images.

$32 which includes postage cost and mailing in a rigid shipping tube.

2012 Sabalo Patch

 

I hope you will enjoy this version which has a detailed embroidered dolphin insignia.  The image of the fish was redrawn by the Sabalo resident artist, Vinny Venezia to better reflect how it appeared on the 1950's patch version and the actual fish.  Iterations by various patch producers had distorted it to the point where it was no longer recognizable.


Great for your SubVets vest or jacket. While the colors are those of the enlisted version (silver), it is possible some could be produced with gold thread if a minimum order quantity might be in demand.  Anyone wishing a gold version should contact me and Iíll keep a list to see if it would be feasible To procure a small quantity.

If you can't remember what a 'wheel' book is:
*Wheel Book = The government had in its inventory for all agencies and branches of service, small, green, semi hard cover note books with the word "Memoranda" in script diagonally across the cover.  Anyone carrying such a book around in their shirt pocket had the slang title given of 'Big Wheel', hence it was called a 'wheel book'.
