U.S. Navy Aircraft 1921-1941, U.S. Marine Corps Aircraft 1914-1959: Two Classics in One Volume [Appendix D Squadron Insignia] by William T. Larkins "...The designating letters of Patrol Squadron Nine are written in the shining sun in this insignia. The wild goose is significant of patrol duties because it is probably the most migratory of all birds, patrolling from the arctic to the temperate climates semi-annually. It travels with unerring judgment to its destination, displaying great endurance and speed; typifying the navigation necessary in patrol duties.
