Cool stuff guys! I have yet to serve under the command of NATO or the UN. Chris, that is an awesome beret! I have never seen a maker tag like that! Can you show a close up?

The 3rd badge - the one I have has "Bangladesh" under the flag - but that doesn't mean that the one you're showing isn't one that iis or was worn in a UN mission.

Some patches with a Scandinavian connection: Starting with a patch worn by a Swede in the ONUC mission in Congo pre-1963 (the veteran I got it from were awarded the medal with the UNTSO-style ribbon with a "Congo" clasp, not the later green-white-blue ribbon). Then over to the ex-Yugoslavia missions of the 90's, the Nordbat 2 combination was worn by the Swedish contribution to UNPROFOR (it also included a Danish tank squadron), the UNPREDEP patch was issued to a Dane in the Scandinavian mission in Macedonia (which was actually considered the original Nordbat, hence Nordbat 2 in Bosnia). The Shirbrig patch has a Swedish connection because of the griffin (the regimental insignia of the South Scanian Regiment), and if Sweden didn't actually contribute with troops to Shirbrig, it could very well have been training in Southern Sweden. The bilingual UN patch is also Swedish in origin, but normally the patch with United Nations in English would be issued.

Hi Jonas
I can see that we share the same passion regarding missions patches. I have som additional information regarding the SHIRBRIG patch. It comes with one more and smallere patch, and i believe that both patches is from Poland. I have both patches from an exercise held in Poland, Exercise BALCOT from 05 -10.09.2001 in the city of Jaworze. Sweden did not participate in that exercise. I have tried to find some information regarding that unit , but whiteout any luck.IMG_0291.thumb.jpg.d016d2284d2b18f3593fc5d5246bfa7e.jpg

Hello Klaus!

I have the very same patch somewhere in my collection too. I got it at the same time as the round one from a Swedish officer (he was Anti-Aircraft Artillery, if I recall correctly) in Southern Sweden. I know Sweden didn't contribute to that unit, but at the time some training was done in Sweden by UN/international units. That's why I think the round one has a Swedish connection, I might be wrong, though. This pennant... hmm... Polish unit pennant? I really don't know...
