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.
