    Been awhile, but here goes some recently acquired theater made patches.

    These came from a new friend. Link at bottom of post.




    PS ***  Portuguese flags are often misidentified as Afghani.

    Thanks Alex,


    Quite a few beauties indeed.  The second batch is mostly of coalition forces .
    I particularly like the Spanish patch, but they are all great to me.

    Spanish patch represents a Spanish heavy mortar unit. The writing basically states " hitting with the fat one "

    Romanian patch is great ; it goes with the patch that is under it.

    Certainly one of my nicer Afghan made patches..

    nice haul again Sal, thanks for sharing ...

    I just realised, when you turn the Afghan patch, the one with the border outline (left to the "God will judge..." one) up so that green is on top - it does look a bit like someone showing the middle finger, doesn't it?

    Swedish para wings update.


    These wings were proposed for the Parachute Ranger School around 1993- 1994 but not implemented.

    They are basically the same as 2nd types but larger and solid, not pressed like 2nd type standard wings.
