    the one patch looks to be the 16th Air Assault Brigade patch in subdued colours and if so...from what I am reading it would be either 2 Para or 3 Para ???

    BUT according to Wikipedia ALL of the following are part of the 16th Air Assault Brigade.

    Current formation
    16 Air Assault Brigade Headquarters and Signals Squadron (216 Parachute Signal Squadron)
    1st Battalion, The Royal Irish Regiment (27th (Inniskilling), 83rd, 87th & Ulster Defence Regiment)
    2nd Battalion, The Parachute Regiment
    3rd Battalion, The Parachute Regiment
    Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, 5th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland
    7th (Parachute) Regiment Royal Horse Artillery
    21 Air Assault Battery 47th Regiment Royal Artillery[2]
    3rd Regiment Army Air Corps
    4th Regiment Army Air Corps
    9th Regiment Army Air Corps
    23 Regiment (Air Assault), Royal Engineers
    7th Air Assault Battalion, Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers
    13 Air Assault Support Regiment, Royal Logistic Corps
    16 Medical Regiment, Royal Army Medical Corps
    156 Provost Company, Royal Military Police
    Pathfinder Platoon


    So maybe it is from a different unit that a Para Battalion?
