Bien Hoa close to Saigon in Indochina. This wore the little inscription 'MDAP' (Mutual Defence Assistance Pact) specifying that this is loaned (land-leased) material by American government within Marshall Plan. At the engine cowling, it wore the insignia composed of the fool of 'the Foolish' SPA 85, and the 'Morietur' crest with hand having downward turned thumb crossed with a sword. This unit got its first Bearcats in December 1952.
