    I think those badges are not worn by many ISAF contingents.  Maybe only UK??

    New Zealand has worn the same patch but in a NZ DDPM / plain khaki for our 21 rotations to Afghan.

    By definition that's not the same patch Very Happy  Most nations use a round patch with the same info on it, but with various different background colors/patterns.  What I as talking about this exact same size, color, and layout badge as shown above.  As far as I know the UK is the only one that uses this. And I think they only started showing up with the MTP uniform, though I'm certainly no expert in that area.

    Very nice collection Graham.

    These ISAF patches were in use pre-silly cam.

    I acquired a DDPM Jacket with the ISAF patches attached pre 2010.

    I think that these ISAF patches were used on the old green DPM pre MTP

    Hi Garry

    Thanks Mate as I said I think the patches I got from the Stan are for the old green DPM and the  top one pictured above was for the desert DPM and the paler green one above that is for MTP they all have exactly the same information just differant background colours
    Regards
