Original D Troop Guide-on, complete with rocket fragment scars, courtesy Tom Shaughnessy.
Variation on a theme(s), combines guide-on with “Tree Top Airlines” Snoopy. Designed by John Gayle.
Nicely done Aero Rifle patch picks up guide-on theme.
Shamrock “Slicks” had their own guide-on inspired patch.
Photos (Clockwise from Top Right): “Cooking up a song”, D&HQ mess personnel; “I’m A Lumberjack And I’m Okay”, Roland Scheetz and Rich Emde; Ron Adams wonders how in the hell he got here; Watching D Troop set up camp, “There goes the neighborhood!”; Undoubtedly the funniest photo in D Troop Archives - That is one unhappy canine!
Scouts had to be different. Nice patch, though.
