    Unofficial Canadian Patches

    Post by mk1rceme on Tue Feb 08, 2011 1:16 am

    Since there seems to be quite an array of these unofficial patches being worn in theater...and since I've been lucky enough to find a few, I figured a thread to discuss these should be entertained. Please add any you have!

    OMLT(Operational Mentor & Liason Team) - These are from different 2010 rotos but with the same Kandaks of the 1st Brigade, 205th Corps.

    Very cool patches. Even cooler when there are photos of same patches being worn. Smile

    I can get lots more pictures of all kinds of patches being worn but I have to get permission from a friend to use them first...still waiting for a reply from KAF since he doesn't get online very often.

    I have seen some Canadian SF wearing the USA/Canada First Special Service Force red arrowhead patch around Kandahar. I'm trying to hunt down an example. With Task Force Kandahar right across the street from our HQs we see lots of different Canadian Patches.

    Hi guys just picked up this patch yesterday. One of my Canadian co-workers here on Kandahar was able to get it for me. He told me that Camp Mirage doesn't exist anymore. I guess this makes this patch even rarer.

    Hi This base doesn't exist anymore, that 's true. Camp Mirage has been set up in 2002. The new base is at Dubai. So I m jealous of this patch!!! Sad
