    NATO insignias used on ex Yugoslavia territories

    Post by kokan1 on Sat Dec 18, 2010 9:47 am

    Instead to divide this NATO insignias to different topics (Bosina IFOR and SFOR, Kosovo KFOR etc, I am posting them here together. Insignias from my collection are "a drop in the sea" but I manage to get only this.

    IFOR

    Post by kokan1 on Sat Dec 18, 2010 9:50 am

    The Implementation Force (IFOR) was a NATO-led multinational force in Bosnia and Herzegovina under a one year mandate from 20 December 1995 to 20 December 1996 under the codename Operation Joint Endeavor to implement the military Annexes of The General Framework Agreement for Peace (GFAP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina, having taken over from UNPROFOR. The Dayton Agreement or GFAP, signed in Paris on 14 December 1995 resulted from a long series of events. This was NATO's first ever out-of-area land deployment. The Land Component's part of the operation was known as Operation Firm Endeavour. On 21 December 1996 the task of IFOR was taken over by SFOR. At its height, IFOR involved troops from 32 countries and numbered some 54,000 troops in-country (BiH) and around 80,000 involved troops in total (with support and reserve troops stationed in Crotia, Hungary, Germany, Italy and also on ships in the adriatic). In the initial phases of the operation, much of the initial composition of the IFOR consisted of units re-flagged from the UNPROFOR operation. The tasks of the Land Component were carried out by three Multi National Divisions: Mostar MND(SE) French led; Banja Luka MND(SW) - British led and Tuzla MND(N) - American led.

    SFOR

    Post by kokan1 on Sat Dec 18, 2010 9:59 am

    The Stabilisation Force (SFOR) was a NATO-led multinational force in Bosnia and Herzegovina which was tasked with upholding the Dayton Agreement. The SFOR operated under the code name Operation Joint Guard (December 21, 1996 – June 19, 1998) and Operation Joint Forge (June 20, 1998 – December 2, 2004). Troop levels were reduced to approximately 12,000 by the close of 2002, and to approximately 7,000 by the close of 2004. During NATO's 2004 Instambul Summit the end of the SFOR mission was announced. It took over from IFOR and was replaced by the European Unions's Eufor Althea, on December 2, 2004. Small numbers of US troops continue involvement (about 250 total) in a limited capacity to hunt down alleged Bosnian Serb war criminal Ratko Mladić. SFOR was divided into three zones of operation: Mostar MNB(S)-Italian, French, Spanish; Banja Luka MND(W)- British, Canadian, Czech, Dutch and Tuzla MND(N)- American, Polish, Russian, Swedish. The three AOs were known collectively as the Multi National Division until the end of 2002 where they were reduced in scope to the Multi National Brigade.

    KFOR - 1

    Post by kokan1 on Sat Dec 18, 2010 10:03 am

    The Kosovo Force (KFOR) is a NATO-led international peacekeeping force responsible for establishing a secure environment in Kosovo.
    KFOR entered Kosovo on June 12, 1999 under a United Nations mandate, two days after the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1244. At the time of UN Security Council Resolution 1244, Kosovo was facing a grave humanitarian crisis, with military and paramilitary forces from the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) and the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) in daily engagement.
    After the 2008 Kosovo declaration of independence the commander of NATO forces in Kosovo said on February 20, 2008 that he did not plan to step up security in the tense north despite violent attacks by Kosovo Serb which forced the temporary closure of two boundary crossings between Kosovo and Serbia.
    As of January 2010, KFOR consists of fewer than 10,000 troops.

    Hello,

    I guess that most of patches are probably theater made ones. I knew somebody overthere who was producing insigneas, patches and postcards, etc.. for PX. He produced the Peacekeer book I already posted before.

    Here is the patch of Luxemburg as well has the Philippines' one.

    The size is 9,5 to 8,3 cm.

    Alex,

    The patch is rather different from yours. Mine is not a merrowed edge one and I really think that it is a 1995' croatian theater made production from a french UN forces supplier who I know.

    Nice to see your patches. Are they from Luxemburg or Germany ?

    hello Jean-Yves
    it is quite possible that my information is not 100% accurate.
    but for a (theater production made​​) it is a really very good quality.
    I come from the German border area to Luxembourg,
    and I made the collection of pieces for the Luxembourg army mission statement. Rolling Eyes
    there is probably a big black hole!!!
    Luxembourg's damn rare
