John Rueger Explorer Base Jacket Patch II

Last week, I wrote about the John Rueger Explorer Base, which was located in Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn, NY from 1960-1966. During its peak, it housed over 2 dozen Sea Explorer Ships from the Five Boroughs of New York City.
There are only two known patches issued for this facility. Both are 5″ (130mm) Round Jacket Patches.  The second one is pictured below.

If you know of any other issues from this camp, I’d be interested in hearing from you.
