    Grouping Captain 2nd Air-Assault Bandera ROGER DE LAURIA Afghanistan 2010

    Post by JYN on Sun Nov 13, 2011 8:16 am

    Hello,

    Result from a friendly meeting few months ago with a Captain from the spanish 2nd Air-Assault Bandera Roger de Lauria with whom I have the same interest with german paratroopers during WWII (and by the way, a fan of my books); last Saturday, he offered me the uniforms he had in Afghanistan during his unit rotation by 2010.

    Enjoy,

    Jean-Yves

    Will, thank you.

    Always interesting to have it from the man who worn it and to get live explainations related to the uniform.

    This is the first spanish uniform related to ISAF in my collection. He said that he probably did put it in the bin as they received the new camouflage.

    Hi,

    I have to add a correction regarding the designation of the Segunda Bandera Roger de Lauria as an air-assault unit.

    A few years ago was decided that from the three Battalions (Banderas) of the Brigade, only one would remain a parachute unit (the Third, in Murcia): The other two would be air-assault and air-mobile respectively (The First and the Second, in Madrid)

    This plan was abandoned and the three Banderas remained PARACAIDISTAS (parachute).

    Great set. I had a buddy in the gym using similar key ring in her sportbag. He also was stationed in Afghanistan.

    Thanks !

    Two patches that I had from the same source. Unofficial patches made in Astan probably by 2010.

    I think the Zapodores is belonging to SF but I am not sure.

    Hello JYN,
    Nice patches.

    Zapadores are airborne engineers (sappers).
