Perfect mementos from the Original Home of the Seabees.
If you were ever at the original home of the Seabees — Davisville, Rhode Island — you surely remember the giant Seabee that guarded Gate 1.
The base is now gone, but not the big Bee. He can be seen on the grounds of the Seabee Museum and Memorial Park, just a few hundred feet from where he once stood.
Now, this historic emblem of the Seabees is pictured on an exclusive 3 1/2-inch diameter embroidered Seabee Museum and Memorial Park patch and on a gleaming 3/4-inch pin.
Both were designed and manufactured for the Museum and is not available elsewhere.
Take a look at the detail in this top quality patch. Frank Iafrate, the Rhode Islander who created the Seabee in 1942, personally supervised the repainting of the Gate Bee in 1999. This pictures the same colors he used and the same determined look on the Bee’s face.
The gold tone pin features an amazingly lifelike full-color Gate Bee protected by an acrylic dome. This quality pin is made in the USA.
You’ll wear these with pride.
