    I know "HV" is typically Croatian, but can't figure out the crown.

    I'm pretty sure it's Dutch. This is the badge that goes over the right breast. I don't know what this one is.

    hi there,

    your patch is from norway.
    HV stands for Heimevernet

    it is the Norwegian HOMEGUARD

    the patch is very old.
    it would in this version as worn until 1983

    greeting from Germany
