Not sure what this patch is.

Looks USA to me.

 

Sub hunters?

 

Any thoughts 

Cheers

Yes - US Navy VS-37.  Anti Submarine Squadron.  Great design!

That's right Antisubmarine Squadron VS-37, I believe they were established in the early 1950s and nicknamed the "Rooster Tails" and later nicknamed the "Sawbucks." Their patch shows the "cold hand of death" over an enemy submarine. They are no longer an active squadron and were disbanded in the 1990s, last major operation being Somalia in 1992.

Yep,  VS-37 Sawbucks (AIRANTISUBRON 37) without scroll, carrier based Viking squadron.  That's the left hand patch.

 

Here's the right hand brown version with scroll

I'm thinking the tabbed one is Philippine made.
