Other Arabic Shoulder Board Rank Sets

Recommended Posts

Guest IMHF

I found a few Arabic Military Shoulder Board Rank sets I would like to share the images with fellow collectors to find out some information about them. They are metal stitched a think they are from Sudan and Syria. I look forward to what information we can come up with like Era and what is the rank itself.

Thank you very much

Here is an image of the second set; very nice metal construction and pins I believe that this set is from Sudan as well.

Thank you

Hi Lorenzo,

Concerning your Syrian ranks, they are very similar to these Syrian Mushir ranks that I have in terms of construction.

The back is also sealed with a layer of PVC, with three black elastic straps. I'm posting a photo of the front for you to see.

That is a very beautiful set, thank you very much for sharing would love to see an image of the reverse. The order of the Insignia on the Shoulder board is it in the right order?

Thank you

Hi Lorenzo,

Yes, the insignia are in the right order.

If you check out this website, you can see President Bashar Al Assad wearing the same type of shoulder boards.

Two stars above crossed swords is for full General, and three stars above crossed swords is for the President.

I'll try and make a picture of the reverse later.

Yes Lorenzo,

Your Syrian ranks are correct. It is for an Air Force Brigadier General with war college red stripe.

Let me know if you find anything else like the Syrian and Sudan ranks. I am also interested!

I'm going to post a few more shoulder boards I have in my collection for your viewing.

First up is a set of Field Marshal ranks, but I am not sure which country they are from. I am guessing it is Egypt? Let me know what you think.

Unfortunately I didn't make pictures of the back, but they have three elastic straps across the back.

Hi Elvis,

Thanks for the information. You are right - the eagle should be a giveaway, but who in Libya wears a Field Marshal rank?

Very nice sets, for some reason I like the Very nice sets for some reason I like the metal stitched embroidery ranks better then the string embroidered sets; Alf what do you think?

Lorenzo, for me, I have no preference, although I love the look of well-made bullion (metal thread).

Some countries use bullion for their dress ranks, eg. France and Morocco, Singapore, to name a few, and they also use Lurex or some other thin metallic thread for their other forms of dress.

Some countries use only bullion thread or gold braid, eg. Thailand.

For me, it depends on what the "official" material is, they all have beauty in my eyes.
