    Honvédség is the name of the Hungarian army. It literally means corps of homeland defenders and was originally used to refer to the revolutionary army established by Lajos Kossuth and the National Defence Committee of the Revolutionary Hungarian Diet in September 1848 during the Hungarian Revolution. In accordance with the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867, the Hungarians were allowed to have their own forces for homeland defence integrated within the Imperial Forces. The Honvédség became a specifically Hungarian army within the Austro-Hungarian Empire, distinct from the Austrian Landwehr and the Imperial and Royal (KuK) army of the empire as a whole. The term Honvédség continued to be the name of the Hungarian military after the end of World War I and the dissolution of the empire. The Hungarian army is still called Magyar Honvédség to this day, and the rank equal to private is honvéd.

    Note that many different versions of these "elite" unit patches exist. Even the official versions could be different, and some commercial maker produce also these badges and soldiers buy and wear those in lack of the originals. The desert version of the 34th patch is also unofficial, made by a private firm, however worn by soldiers on the desert uniform.

    Kokan, do you know all these badges? There is a good guide book for hungarian arm patches, edited by a well-known arm patch collector.
