    Hello,
    3 patches based on FSSF pattern - locally made in Afghanistan (Kabul).
    I guess the patches are related to A Coy PPLI.
    Any comments welcomed!

    rsunday, it's PPCLI, not PPLI


    Also, are you thinking of A Coy 1PPCLI, aka Red Devils ?

    Anyways, I was never with 1st Battalion, but I don't remember them ever having any patches/stickers using the FSSF patch. On a side note, CSOR traces it's unit lineage/history to the First Special Service Force, and there are photos around of CSOR and USSF wearing the arrowhead/FSSF patch.

    Hi,

    You, are right, I missed C, thanks.

    I got info that PPCLI soldiers in Afghanistan used such a patches as unofficial.
    Probably A Coy 3PPCLI.

    I found the patches in Kabul.

    Can you provide pics of CAN/US SOF guys with the FSSF patches?
    I put one of CANSOF on this forum. I also saw US Navy Seal with FSSF patch.

    Greetings

    A few new patches...

    KPRT - The one on the left is theater-made. Pretty sloppy but I like 'em that way.



    ISAF - The two on top are theater-made.



    And some IR flag patches...these are genuine issue.

    Im guessing the SCREWS part as it used to be slang for prison guards.
