    DRA Communist Democratic Republic of Afghanistan Items

    Post by abomb88 on Thu Aug 25, 2016 1:44 am

    Hello everyone

    I have always wondered has anyone ever come across any DRA Communist Democratic Republic of Afghanistan items or uniforms from the soviet occupation period. Haven't seen many items surface from the regime in awhile. Once had a DRA badge on a Russian cap but sold it awhile back. There must be some of that stuff stashed away somewhere.

     This is a Afghan/Soviet War era wool uniform worn by the Afghan Army (DRA).  Tags have been removed.


      I have another set of these with maroon/red collar tabs for the Afghan Ministry of the Interior and they have Soviet manufacturing tags.  



      The set I posted here have had the tags removed, but am posting one of the tags from the above mentioned Afghan MoI set.

      Thanks for the comment.  In my estimation, it is extremely hard to find DRA items.

    Nice you got one of those uniforms. The uniforms are the poorest quality BUT HIGHLY collectable and RARE. If some of these DRA uniforms were made in the Soviet Union there must be a warehouse in the former Soviet union with some crates long forgotten with DRA stuff. Who knows I guess DRA items were not popular under the Taliban now you can't find any

    That was exactly my reaction when I found this set for sale!  It is indeed made of very poor quality material, but it appears to be unused. I doubt that very many of these have survived, since I can imagine that they would probably fall apart after much use.

    Hello!
    Not around much on the forum, but just spotted this post..
    While tracking down former Spetsnaz-locations around Kabul with my Local interpreter,
    I build many contacts who supplied me with quite some DRA insignia.
    I have problems posting images due to many poor internet-spots..
    Would anyone have an Email-adress I could sent to ?

    regards,
    Chris
