From someone attached to this unit:

 

“The Tiger patch was for the second half of Flight School. Twenty guys were taken from a class of 55 and sent to Fort Sill and qualified in the XM1 gunnery system. XM1 was the first armament put on a helicopter, it was a machine gun mounted on the skids. I can't remember (old age) what gun but I think it was an M60.”

 

Great to see that this one is verified.

Not a pocket patch I know, but was something that we think should be added here as there may have been a cloth version PP.

Was it? I did a topic search using the standard keywords but nothing showed. Thanks for posting again tred, here it shows but the metal and cloth versions together.

Do you know what unit designation this patch might have?  I have a larger variation of this patch.  Or even the same one if these belonged to Doug B at one time.  The black background, bullion version.

Well not to be left out......The large gunnery school patch is very nice on a wool base. I have no other info. Included beside the previous design to give a size comparison. Jeff Williams

Here's the mate to the 46th Division Air Section on the hat I posted earlier. With this one the design is a little more clear. Behind the turtle you can see mailed fist insignia of the division.

A couple more, Red cloud flight named in honor of "Cpl. Mitchell Red Cloud Jr., whose stand-to-the-death against an enemy night attack during the Korean War earned him a posthumous Medal of Honor, and for whom Camp Red Cloud was named." From an Army.mil article.

 

Originally this unit was the 3rd Light Aviation Section then on 24 September 1963 was redesignated the 59th Aviation Co. The small patch is probably trimmed from an ascot.

This one hasn't been completely identified. Research linked it to an Armed OH-13 training course, given out on completion of the course. But, there exists a near identical patch associated with an ORWAC training class at Fort Sill in 1963. That patch is different only in that the GRRAH at bottom has "63-1T".https://www.vhpa.org...cs/63-1tpat.jpg
