Default Does anyone know where I can purchase a Batuk badge from?

I just come back from a deployment to Kenya where we worked under Batuk, the training support unit, and Iíd like one of the Batuk badges (preferably Velcro backed) but canít find it for sale in England anywhere. Anyone have any ideas?

Cheers

As far as I know the image you show is the logo, used on paper and signs.
The badge worn is.

Hi, so whilst I was in Kenya most had sown on the one you’ve pictured however there where some Batuk staff who wore a Velcro patch of just the red circle and two, I believe, batons.

*edit- probable not batons, maybe scabbards

Thanks for that information, now there is another one to find. The badge did change a little when the title changed but not a great deal.

Goloks to use the correct NSN terminology - although the issue golok (old version and new) has two rivets through the handle, not three.

Sorry, but the Pedant in me is coming out. What is represented in the image are crossed ĎPangaísí.
Or, to you and me, machetes.
