Default Jordanian military cloth shoulder title ID

The attachment shows a pair of Arabic cloth shoulder titles. The translation is something like Responsible for Housing, Buildings and Non-military equipment maintenance. I have checked with the military in Saudi Arabia and they confirm they have a group that has those responsibilities but all the work is carried out by civilians. Also the late D V Olson who wrote Badges and Distinctive Insignia of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia does not show these titles. Then it occurred to me it may be a Jordanian pair of titles. Can any of you Jordanian experts please give me a correct ID of these titles. FYI they may still be for sale on eBay.
I would be interested to hear from any one who collects Saudi badges and insignia as I am preparing raw data for a book on this subject for next year hopefully. Also interested in hearing from any one who has Bahrain or Qatar patches.
