So many advantages for being in Engineering Dept/R-Division. Having the ability to use machines and equipment to make your own things. These were the small metal logos that the MR's glued onto the officers nameplates for their uniform. I glued a pin on the back side to make a lapel pin and or hat pin.

. Nice The real Tarawa patch, not these colorful ones that they have now, they are nice if you were on Tarawa in the later years but I am partial to the Plank Owner days and the caps and patches we had then.

. Awesome work, Tarawa not only had a tight crew, but some real Master Crafters.
