    iraq Theatre Made Patches - Help Needed Perhaps From Our UK Brothers?

    Post by kriegsmodell on Mon Aug 22, 2011 8:44 pm

    Hello all,

    Two patches that came in a large grouping of insignia that another member here was so good to send home to me from OIF. I'm thinking this may be from our UK allies if for no other reason that the Union Jack in the background of #1. Both patches have very similar wording:

    PSD SET33 & Iraq - one has team Outlaws and the other Hired Guns







    Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    Yeah, on closer inspection the first patch does look more like PSD than PSO, but why the union Jack, on a US patch...the mystery remains!!!!

    Sorry friends for the quality of the pics but I can assure you they are both PSD. And thanks to all for the comments .....
