The Blue Shark - This was the Shark that always hung in the squadron Duty Office. Other squadrons were always trying to steel the our mascot, and on a few occasions they were successful. We once found the shark painted entirely pink after being MIA for about a month. It was normally the job of the Bull Ensign to know where is was at all times. Not sure what ever became of our Shark after the decommissioning.
