Hello Sean
That was a good spot - the Iraq Levies badge (it seems to be), my identification was based on the shoulder title and assumed the hat badge naturally followed. I'm now a little less certain whether my id is correct as I can't find a place called Mihran/Mibran and if it's a photographer, the name Mihran seems to be associated with Persia/Iran and Asia Minor.

So I don't know now.
