The wings are Cambodian.Kinda based on a set of French Wings.You will see Cambodian Wings,Loation and Thai worn during the VN era by SF men.More commonly the Vietnamese wings are seen but SF me attached to different training or advisory teams often earned the wings from that country

I have not seen this patch mentioned or posted, but State Guard patches are a bit of a niche. Still in my opinion a tough patch to find. (for me)

 

Massachusetts State Guard Flying Column SEP 43 - SEP 45

 

The Flying Column, Massachusetts State Guard. Since the entire National Guard was in Federal service during World War II, the Adjutant General decided that he needed a quick reaction force that consisted of a fulltime platoon of State Guardsmen which was organized in September 1943.

The mission of the flying column was to assist local police during strikes, riots, natural disasters and to repel enemy submarine landings. The unit was stationed at the old Cambridge Armory where the State Guardsmen were required to live and train. The Flying Column was disbanded in September 1945.

Seems rare to me, cant find another one online, well except the one I sold, had 2 shirts the same from same sale. Operation Phoenix?

Here is what I believe to be a rare patch. I don't know what is stands for but the jacket seems to have once had a 7th army patch on it.
