    That's a realy nice grouping !

    PS : I permit me to move it out of the US section to post it in the Iraq section (all the items shown are Iraqi army stuff).

    Yeah sorry the Iraqi section is more fitting although be aware the on camp SEALS and later the USSF mentor guys for the most part got their uniforms and kit out of the Q store as well and wore the same to blend in while working in town. I even noticed a lot of the US SF guys even grabbed the railled up AKs with EOTECS out of the Iraqi armoury before gigs "Downtown".

    And yes, as previously mentioned about one of your ERB patches Merc, it was an ERU patch modified at the local tailor shop. I think you'll find the ERU was operational long before it changed to Brigade strength and became the ERB, thus the similar patch history.

    Cheers, Aj

    To be honest i didn't think anybody would be interested, glad to share and i'll add some more to this topic as i look through boxes.

    Cheers, Aj

    Protech body armor issued to the Higher Risk door kickers and Mentors who didn't have better. Most ERU riffraff just got the basic Blackhawk plate carriers.

    More of the camp ERU / ERB "Instructor" patches displayed on my favorite Iraq bring back.

    NOTE: Bottom right is not a typo, this is an Italian patch when they took over some of the training tasks, obviously they wanted to follow the theme.

    Nice patches !

    For information, ODA 0332 = Team2, C Co, 3rd Btn, 10th SFG

    And well, to confirm they worked closely with ERB in Iraq :

    "On trigger, ODA 0332 combat advising ERB [= Emergency Response Battalion] conducts intelligence driven raid to capture IMAD AYAL JABER IVO (OBJ ALPHA) in order to disrupt JAM-SG operations in the West Rashid area of Baghdad".

    Hey gang.

    Cool looking wall banner! I got one to a 3rd SF guy, with Major League Infidel ODA 322 team patch on. Looks to be in the exact same size and kaki material.
    Will try post a photo when Im back home.

    Best regards
    Martin
