This undated photograph shows George Duncan and an unidentified mechanic pointing to the 199th Fighter Interceptor Squadron patch. It is painted on the engine cowling of a Republic P-47 Thunderbolt.

We estimated the date as the early 1950 because the Air Force approved the patch on October 11, 1950. The patch was designed by squadron pilot Wade McVay. The squadron continued flying the Jugs until 1954.
