This is a navy blue neck tie with apple and integrals motif designed for the Gyro Systems Division (GSD). The design was the winner of an internal competition. This Division was transferred to Rochester from Borehamwood in 1963 and in 1973 merged with Inertial Navigation Division (IND) so the tie can only be dated to this decade.
