Just got this in a trade for an addition to my Chairborne patches. Really nice Japan Occupation made patch! Sewn onto something at one time. Really nice quilted made patch! I cannot find out much about the unit - PATRON 57.  VP-57 maybe?

Thanks for sharing! Never have seen a Navy one in this style before!

There is a 1954 VP-57 yearbook on eBay. They flew PV-2s out of Atsugi for a period of time, assuming 1954. The squadron was redesignated just a couple years later.

PATRON = Patrol Squadron.
