Default Arab Legion, Royal Jordan Army cloth badges

Hi Guys

I am trying to make sense of the various cloth badges worn by the Arab Legion and the post 1956 Royal Jordan Army. The only printed source seems to be Osprey's Men at Arms 128, Arab Armies of the Middle East Wars 1948-73.

I am wondering if anybody has any they would part with or indeed any photos, preferable IDed?

The three groups I am looking at are:

The cloth slip on loops worn by Infantry battalions under the AL title.

The cloth titles worn by supporting arms

And the cloth arm patches worn, mostly by higher formations

Any help would be most gratefully received

Default Arab Legion shoulder titles

First post here, I've been looking for some help with identifying some badges, but before I make a knowledge withdrawal I'll try an add some credit.

For the regiment / battalion loops below is the list I have manage to identify, unfortunately the one you show is not on there. I agree it is hard to piece this together, I find the IWM online collections a good source, if you search by Jordan or Arab Legion, based on what comes up the more you tweak the search the more comes up.

I have a couple of examples (2nd and 7th) which I will post - probably over the weekend, I have a few shoulder flash and formation badges, all but one identified which I will also post.

Steve.

Hi, my first post here, need some help with some badges but before I make a knowledge withdrawal Iíll try an add some credit.

Below is a list of shoulder titles I have managed to identify so far. As you say refence material is thin on the ground, Iíve found the IWM on line collection useful. I have a some examples which I will post -probably over the weekend.

Unfortunately the one you show is not on my list.

I have some should titles and unit patches also.
