I got this patch at Clark AB, Philippines in 1973 while assigned to this wing.

The following year (1974) the 405th became the 3rd Fighter Wing.

Thanks for posting. The center shield portion of this patch displays classic Philippine type construction.

Very nice example. You can also see the mesh backing material as well. Thanks for sharing.

Great looking patches. I was at Clark from 84-86 and love any of the PI made patches.The 405th TFW did NOT become the 3rd TFW.The 3rd TFW took over as the host unit at Clark AB when the 405th TFW left Clark.
