The flag shown is actually the battle flag for the USS Spadefish SS-411. I know because I saw a framed copy of it in the crews mess of the USS Spadefish SSN-668.

I am married to the daughter of a crew member of the USS SPEARFISH. His name was Robert E. Fretz, who has since passed away. The flag that her family had on display was quite different than this one.

Mr. Spencer -
I have no idea if you will ever received this as it has been several years now. I used to own some items of MoMM2c R.E. Frentz - would love to talk more about his service on the Spearfish. Very best regards, Bill Kapsalis (email@example.com)
