Ray Young... Loggerhead Battle Insignia (1944). "...Color print of the battle insignia for the submarine U.S.S. Loggerhead, a submarine built in Manitowoc, Wisconsin by the Manitowoc Shipbuilding Company in 1944. The design depicts an aggressively-swimming loggerhead turtle with a gun mounted on its back, two torpedoes in its flippers, and a sailor's cap on its head. The original insignia was created as an air brush drawing by Ray Young, a Manitowoc artist who was employed as a designer at the company. Altogether Young created the battle insignia emblems for the last ten of twenty-eight submarines built by the Manitowoc Shipbuilding Company during World War II."
