    Austrian "Shoulder Sleeve Insignia" Thread

    Post by Philip on Mon Dec 07, 2009 10:52 am


    Bundesadler ("federal eagle") patch. Worn by all Austrian troops (in Austria and usually on left side)

    Unit patches (worn on right side):


    Panzerbatallion 14 ("armored battalion 14")


    Panzerbatallion 14 2. Kompanie (2nd company)


    Panzerbatallion 14 3. Kompanie (3rd company)


    Panzergrenadierbatallion 13 ("mechanised infantry battalion 13")


    Panzergrenadiebatallion 13-Kaderpräsenzeinheit


    That's all what I have so far. I don't really collect them because they're way too expensive. On ebay they're up to about 20$. In the army we paid just 2€ each or sometimes got them for free! Above you see the patches of my units in basic military service and the last two I got from a friend. He used to be in that unit.

    Nice pictures! I hear you about the prices, though. I've never understood how patch collectors can drive up the costs of something produced in the tens of thousands (or millions) so high.

    I have some unit insignia that hangs off of the shoulder straps, similar to types used by many African nations. The cloth is the same as KAZ NEU so I presume they were for that uniform. However, I've never seen pictures of them in use. I'm wondering if it was an experimental trial?

    Dang, I thought I had some pics on hand, but I can't find any. I'll try to take some pictures tomorrow. I have badges for two different units.
