OK, will give you my 2 cents worth. A little background first. Between 1951 and 1961, the Air Force contracted with nine civilian flying school to provide primary flight training for pilots. Although the schools were operated by civilians, the Air Force had a parallel presence at each of the schools. They were the 3300th thru 3308th Pilot Training Squadrons / Groups (Contract Primary). Each class of students were broken into either flights / squadrons, depending on the school. Attached are two examples from Class 58-B, 3305th PTG (CB), Greenville AFB, Mississippi. The are flight patches and their call signs are Gray 2 and Yellow 7.

I'm sure three of your patches are from these schools. The Tiger N patch is probably a Flight patch from one of the regular Air Force schools. A picture of Pink 4 is also attached, I do not know which of the schools it is from.

Pink Four flight is from the 3505th PTS. Been on the look out for that one for some time, trying to get one for a veteran friend of mine. His father can be seen to the left on the picture, norwegians got jet fighter training in the US.
