Looking for squadron commissioning ceremony photos for all RONs. I'm trying to compile a verified list of camouflage patterns carried by the boats when first placed in service. I have them for RON22 and 23. I can figure out some of the earlier ones by looking at dated factory photos and knowing when certain Measures became official, but photographic evidence is always the best.
