Artifacts

The process of cataloging AIMM’s artifacts is an ongoing process, and more information, including photographs and a full description of our artifacts, will be posted as it becomes available.

Examples of our collection include the following:

Plaques

It is traditional for Navy service members to receive a small plaque at the end of each assignment. This plaque usually includes a replica of the vessel’s official seal or patch. Plaques are often presented at promotions, awards, or other similar events.

A selection of the plaques in AIMM’s collection are on display in the museum at any given time.

Some highlights of our collection are:

 

Christening / Launching / Commissioning / Welcome Aboard Booklets
