Default Cloth Conundrums.

Good Afternoon everyone,

I have already posted this thread on It's a Mystery - Unknown Insignia for identification as some of you may have seen. However I thought I should put the thread on here as well since all the badges I am looking to identify are cloth patches and formation signs.

Please note that numbers 3,9,10,15 & 18 have already been identified.

Thanks
Bill

No 20 could be a U.S army first corps patch. If you try googling this you will see similar ones.

I don't think this to be US I Corps as it is too small and the white ring is much fatter than what is normally seen.

Hi CB - think you are right about the suggestion I made about the US 1st Corps patch. On second thoughts, it is not a 1st Corps patch due to the points you made.....

Surely 16 is some sort of Middle Eastern military / police dog handler badge? If you find anyone who speaks Arabic, you could ask them to translate.....
