Badges of Sea and Sky Association: Return from Oblivion

Recommended Posts

Yep.

This practically forgotten Sea and Sky Association and its badges…

Most likely it was another youth association (highly militarized of course).

The exact year of Association foundation is not known (at least to me).

The exact gradation of the badges is not known (at least to me).

But let’s try to see what we have for today ;)

Ordinary Member Badge

The only published source on English that mentioned this badge is Paul Murphy and Steven Ackley book “In the name of Living God”.

At page 44 we find this badge (fig. 5.13)

It is described as “Ordinary Member Badge of the Sea and Air Association”.

After the description of the badge the authors wrote that “This is the only badge for this organization encountered so far”.

Well, let’s get acquainted with others badges ;)

Special (?) Member Badge

The only difference in design between this and previous badge is laurel wreath at the bottom of the badge.

Here it is.

The lower inscription reads as

- Sea and Sky Association.

The upper looks like special member badge to me, but I am not sure ...
