    Any pictures of Bulgarian forces in Bosnia/Kosovo with Splinter uniform?

    Post by CollectinSteve on Sat Dec 11, 2010 9:10 pm

    I've got a 2001 dated Splinter uniform and a pile of badges. I want to make a uniform that is correct for a Peace Keeper in the Balkans. But I have had very little luck finding pictures that are useful for this purpose. Can anybody here help out?

    Hi Steve,

    There are a few decent photos in Special Ops Journal Vol. #5 that were taken in Kosovo during "Cooperative Best Effort" in 1998. None of them are close enough to really show insignia though, if that's what you're after. Decent shots of the uniforms, weapons, and fieldgear though. I don't have a scanner, but could try and photograph the photos and post them if you're interested.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    Yeah, it's the badging I'm after. Even confirmation of wearing badging would be good to have! I've only seen name/nation tapes and a KFOR (or IFOR, can't tell) badge on a winter jacket.

    For sure that is the norm. However, I have some pictures that show badging towards the end of the use of Splinter uniforms. But the pictures aren't high resolution and that means I can't see the details. And I can't see if there is anything on the arms.

    It saddens me there aren't thousands of pictures online like there are for Germany, Great Britain, and the US. I guess they have more digital cameras in their pockets Smile

    If one of 30 works for you its fine, i am saying this because they were people trained for 3-4 mounths and sended there. Maybe 1 of 30 even 1 of 50 would have badges.
    And yes pretty much no pictures i have searched a lot but there arent any decent, so I just called a friend.

    OK, that's good enough for me. If badging was that rare I don't want to put badging on any of my uniforms. However, now I need to do something with my bag of badges Sad

    If you find decent pictures, please post!

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Bulgarian stuff tends to be pretty expensive on eBay, but the items are there. I got my first set of Bulgarian splinter back in the late 1990s from Chris Remey (sp?). I bet a few of you also got sets from him.

    Certainly wasn't the 1980s Very Happy Older type national shield, so probably early 1990s.

    Nice picture. Really nice Greek LBV and equipment pouches.
