Classic Legacy Patch named "The Bat on the Moon" designed by the wife of a 59th Supply Airman back in 1952. “Freicudan Du” is Gaelic for Black Watch or Black Guard.
Unfortunately, this Bat on the Moon patch was never submitted to the Air Force for official recognition. Never-the-less, it became the 59th Squadron Emblem for the Goose Bay Northeast Air Command period from mid 1952 until the squadron was inactivated in 1967. A bat, without the moon, was painted on both sides of the nose of the F-94 squadron aircraft between the gun ports and air intake duct.
The Squadron eventually became the 59th Test and Evaluation Squadron under the 53rd Test and Management Group at Nellis AFB, NV.
While they use the Proud Fighting Lion symbol and patch, they have incorporated this classic Goose Bay, 59th Black Bat patch design as their Friday nametag.
