Original Korean War US Navy EM Submarine Dolphin Badge 1951 USS Tilefish. Very nice US Navy item. Marked on reverse with NS Meyer hallmark.
Badge appears to be nickel brass. Badge is engraved with USS TILEFISH SS307 and the date 8-23-51.
On September 5, 1950, Tilefish departed Pearl Harbor for Japan. From September 28, 1950 the submarine operated out of Japanese ports conducting patrols in Korean waters in support of the United Nations campaign in Korea. She made reconnaissance patrols of La Perouse Strait to keep the Commander, Naval Forces Far East, informed of Soviet seaborne activity in that area.
