Default unknown Arab shoulder titles

Hi Gents,
Not my area of collecting these, but does anybody know if they are Army or Police?
Many Thanks in advance.
Colin

I believe the bottom two relate to the Arab Legion.

Hi Colin

I've mislaid mine at present but I'm pretty sure I have this one as Jordan Public Security Force.

1. I was told by a dealer it is Iraqi Traffic Department. I dont know.
2. UAE police. Think it was the first they used.
3 and 4 Jordanian. Silver for police and gold for army is the usual plan.
I expect you will get a reply from a Jordanian collector to give a more definitive result.

General understanding is that silver are pre-1956, brass are 1956 onwards, the police do still wear silver titles but I'm not sure if it says something different on them.
By the look of the quality and finish the one shown here is the pre-1956 Arab Legion title.
