    I've run out of new and used BELGIUM and name tapes for normal Jigsaw uniforms. I have a spare current jungle set that is otherwise nicely badged for KFOR Para Commando, so it's a little sad to have it be incomplete when it goes onto eBay or out for trade. Does anybody have a decent used pair up for trade? I have tons of spare badging to exchange.

    Hi,

    It will be very difficult to find, it is theoretically forbidden, this is the reason why 95% of Belgian uniforms no longer have names. Good luck!

    Hi Usall,

    Thanks!  This confirms what I've been seeing. It seems the number of surplus items with both tapes still attached is getting smaller by the year.  I did just get a desert jacket with both tapes on them.  That was a surprise as desert name tapes have always been very difficult to get.

    I have a couple of brand new BELGIUM tapes (from the days when transitioning from arm flag to chest tape), but it won't look good on this used uniform.

    Oh well, I'll find one someday.  I'm patient Wink

    I have a military friend, I'm going to ask him if he doesn't know how to help you! Wink

    On my trips to Belgium, the tapes have only rarely showed up in misc boxes of insignia at surplus shops.
