What SSI do these Tabs go over ?

Was always under the impression they were worn over the Southwest Pacific Command patch.

Stars and Stripes tab, a variant that lacks the CORRESPONDENT on the bottom as HERE. location and date unknown, though definitely either right after the war or towards the end.

Anyone ever seen this tab? I found the picture online and know nothing about it. I'm sure it's not official, but it is interesting that it looks like it was manufactured the same as the 508th RCT SSI.

My WAG is the Association tab is for the 82nd Airborne Division Association, of certain vintage for sure, worn perhaps on civvy like windbreakers, blazers???

Tab for the Allied Command Europe Mobile Force Land (LAND) worn with a 3rd Support Command SSI. The SSI was approved for the 3rd Logistical Command in 1952, redesignated for the 3rd Support Command in 1974 and again redesignated for the 3rd Sustainment Command in 2007.
The soldier is also wearing the pocket badge for NATO’s Allied Mobile Force (AMF) Allied Command Europe (ACE).
According to wikipedia, the Allied Command Europe Mobile Force (AMF) was a small NATO quick reaction force, headquartered at Heidelberg, Germany, active from 1960 to 2002. It formed part of Allied Command Europe (ACE), headquartered at SHAPE at Casteau, Belgium. The land component of the force, consisting of a brigade-sized formation of about 5,000 personnel, was composed of units from 14 NATO states.

Tab-type "PROVOST MARSHALL GENERAL CENTER" patch. The photo caption indicates it was taken at Fort Gordon in 1951. A google search shows the tab was worn with the Third Army SSI which makes sense for Fort Gordon. But notice neither of these soldiers wears a Third Army SSI.

Came across this earlier topic by member militbuff that shows a REGULAR ARMY tab, a Theater Made one over Western Pacfc patch on a WWII M26 Sergeant;s Coat, no Ruptured Duck, the Sergeant strips being the Pre 1948 Type, with a early design Ryukyu Command patch which turns out is a command Engineering School, on the right shoulder. Curious right as we are in the belief these came out during the Korean War for wear by men of the Regular Army that found themselves assigned to one of the Federalized National Guard Divisions, or as Regular Army types assigned to one of the Training Divisions as perhaps Cadre or Support Personnel.

The first one, New Guinea, what would this one be really? period? Repro? Fantasy? Do you think the Tab is Attached?
