Unknown Vietnam vintage Marine Helicopter patch - HMM-261

I have not been able to find an ID for this. I though the 174 on the front helicopter would be super easy but I haven't been able to hit on any squadrons with that number other than Marine Wing Support Squadron 174, which I think this patch pre-dates.

The "Big Daddy Roth" style artwork and the Drag Wheels does place it in the early to mid 1960's timeframe and that is a CH-46 introduced in 1962. See page 52 here

Thanks, I agree that it is a cool looking patch. I only have a couple with Big Daddy Roth style designs but I really like the look.

Thank you IH, that sure looks like it! No telling why someone cut the tab off.
