    Unknown Turkish Insignias from the 1960s -1980s?

    Post by RedLion1 on Fri Jun 08, 2012 10:47 pm

    Hello, I hope that I am posting in the right area but I was given these insignia and I was told that they are from the 1960s - 1980s. I know that they are Turkish but would anyone happen to know what they are for? Also, I have the patch to right in two sizes, but why would they come in two different sizes?

    I also have one with the words " Jandarama Komando" on it, what are the differences? Please excuse me, I usually only deal with middle eastern items and there is not a lot of references on Turkish Militaria.

    The right one is "commando" patent. Turkish Armed Forces have 7 Main Commando brigate. 1 Gendarmerie commando Brigade ,1 parashuter commando Brigade , 4 Army Mauntain Commando brigade and 1 Navy Marine-Commando brigade...

    A Soldier who belongs to gendarmerie commando and armny mountain commando brigades attachs this this patent on his uniform....


    Commando brigades faunded late of the 1980's for the terror zones. Thay are fighting to the PKK terrorist in the Southeastern zones of the Turkey....

    Also the "Jandarma Comando" İn (English word Gendarmerie Commando)forces are fighting from the PKK terrorist in the terro zone.The only difference is they are depending Gendarmerie branch of the Turkish Armed Forces.

    Some pics about Gendarmerie commando forces of the Turkish Armed forces...

    Thank you for the information. I was told that it is a mountain commando qualification insignia, now if it is just a commando qualification. What are differences between the mountain commando qualification insignia and the commando qualification insignia? Is there such thing a mountain commando qualification insignia?

    You would think this information would be posted up on the Turkish Armed Forces website.
