    ANA patches ID thread.

    Post by Mercenary25 on Sun Feb 05, 2012 3:37 pm

    Decided to create a thread for people who need a help with IDing ANA patches.

    ...I'm one of them. Smile

    I have seen in photos ANA soldiers wearing them but not sure what it is for. Is it just another variety of Afghanistan flag patches?

    You are correct about the rectangular mountain patch being generic. The wording is God, country, service

    As far as the group of three, the rectangular one is a generic infantry patch, essentially an MOS patch. The shield shaped one is 201st Corps, the circular one is from Helmand province but unsure of the exact unit. Hope this helps!

    Hello,

    Get this ANP patch among other patches and I was wondering which ANP unit it was ? As you could see the MOI symbol is unfinished.

    For one of my serious contact who has been several times in Afghanistan, it is the ANP PRC (Provincial Unit Company). On the other hand, I found a seller on Ebay who is proposing several ANA/ANP patches for sale and he is selling it as an ANP Customs patch.

    If any of you has any information... thank you in advance.

    Jean-Yves

    I also remember seeing our Infantry Brigade Commander wear the top two flag patches on his OCP and ACUs while there.

    Have not seen the design but from what can be ascertained from the pic; I have no problem with it. ANCOP SWAT patches are known and often feature animals; wolves, scorpians, etc. Good looking patch. My thoughts ony ......

    Hi Jean-Yves,

    Unless you have found out about this patch yourself in the meantime, here is the info about it :

    It says :

    Police melli Afghanistan (Afghan National Police)- Tolai Wakonesh e welayati (Provincial Quick Response Company) - Welayat e Paktia (Paktia Province)

    I have one in my collection, a genuine bring-back in a slightly worse condition, since mine survived almost one year in field service.

    In the majority of cases these locally-made patches were duplicated in small -digital- embroidery shops either on the premises of ISAF bases, or in the local market.  Customers in these embroidery shops found a vast selection of unit and morale patches mounted on cardboard panels. Unless the patch you needed was in stock, you could order it and pick it up next day.

    cheers,

    I known those : I made them...
    Their not legal, because authority didn't agree them. But they was weared by the ANCOP SWAT 4 from Herat and the ANCOP SWAT 5 create in a logistical unit near Kaboul (i don't remember the name). Fives swat team had been created and trained by an europeen unit "eurogendfor", composed of military policemen. the swat unit was choosen after physical and technical tests and trained in an logistical school in mazar e sharif, RTC. shooting instruction was given in "shaheen camp". ANCOP means AFGHAN NATIONAL CIVIL ORDER PUBLIC. I think that only 50 patchs have been created of each.
