Default Gulf States or Turkish Patches

Hi all. Could anyone help me identify these patches. I purchased them as being from one of the Gulf States but think they could be Turkish with the crescent. Either way I have not been able to find anything via the Web as yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

I think the rank slide is a Turkish Jandarma (Gendarme) Current issue.

I believe the rank slide is Turkish Gendarmerie "Yarbay" = Lieutenant Colonel.

All the best

The two round patches are Qatari. No idea what the top one is but the other is the current Emiri Guard. The rank is unknown to me but may also be Qatari as red and blue appear on armoured vehicles. Perhaps others can show us some of the other Qatari patches. I have the Signals one which has a centre of white over light blue diagonally and a lightning flash going through it in yellow. The unit had a Royal Signals CO for many years and no doubt hence the white and blue, albeit light blue, of the centre of the patch.

Thanks very much for the info guys. At least it gives me an avenue to persue. Funnily enough I did Google Qatari insignia but nothing came up. Cheers.
