Owain - really interesting to see these - thankyou. What period would they be - current , or the old Government. I must say that to see the old historical names of Baghdad and Ninevah - dating back 5000 years was quite exciting. Do you have some more Iraqi Police items you can show ?

Apologies to 'bmsm' who I see actually started the post. First names help prevent these mistakes !!!

I wasn't sure how Iraqi Police Arm patches would be received instead of badges so I didn't post any more.

Hi - Bob - so glad we have a name - I kept thinking it stood for some of those weird initials they us in the US ?? I personally thought they were interesting and it would be good to have more on the Iraqi Police in general - after all they feature in the paper nearly every day.

What period are these from - the three stars - weren't they from the time when Egypt and Syria made a pact ?

Owain,

Thanks for catching the error on the translation. That is what happens when working overtime and then trying to do a quick post and not checking what was posted. Nejdah in Arabic means "rescue" so the translation should be "Rescue Police".

Well done Bob - with the present situation in Iraq these are going to attract a lot of interest. Are they all current ? Would be nice if someone could add photos of the uniforms showing the patches being worn ?

I was going to post a picture of one of the patches being worn on a uniform in Iraq yesterday from another web site but it didn't work. I don't know what I did wrong but will give it another try later.

This is a Iraqi Traffic Policeman arm patch. It is 3.75 in. in diameter and made out of a felt like material. It was used at the end of the 1970's or beginning of the 1980's. After the embargo was placed against Iraq in 1990, they had to make their own patches,badges and medals and the quality was not good. Before 1990, their patches,badges and medals were made outside of Iraq and of very good quality.

With the plastic covering, they are similar of the type used in South Africa a few years ago, Good that you have a pair for the order they would have faced for the uniform.
