I'll look that up for you. This is the same patch the crew chief was wearing, the Wolfhounds patch of the 32nd Fighter Interceptor Squadron. I obtained it during a visit to Camp New Amsterdam in 1967 and I still have it in my possession.

This RNLAF F-84F Thunderstreak stood on static display during the open house at Soesterberg AB on June 17th 1967.
Also present was the RNLAF F-104G Starfighter D-8093.
Seen from a different angle, showing the dummy Sidewinder and the canon.
Also on static display, RAF Lightning F2 XN780H.
RNLAF Alouette III A-254 and Hunter Mk.6 N-283. The Hunter pilots often wore silver helmets.

RNLAF Alouette III A-254 is showing the display date.
Both Alouette IIIs made a flying display during the open day.
N-320, the only camouflaged RNLAF Hunter T.Mk.7. The other T.Mk.7s had a polished aluminium skin with dayglow bands, like the display Hunter T.Mk.7 N-321 which is present at Leeuwarden AB. Photo Dick Barendregt, collection Ragay.
