    Iraqi Police Armband

    Post by AndrewA74 on Tue Jan 12, 2010 10:02 pm

    This armband was sent to me by a US Army soldier that is a collector and he said that there was a crate full of these things in a wharehouse in Georgia that the military never sent to Iraq. This armband is a dark blue (the flash makes it brighter) and US made. It also has a velcro closure on the back. Enjoy.

    Thank you. I've tried to find pictures of an armband this style being used before and I just can't. I wonder if this type was ever sent to Iraq at all?

    Okay, thank you! At least I know this wasn't a style that was rejected by the factory. Very nice armband by the way.

    Andrew,
    I can't see all the Arabic Writing on the armband but I'm sure it is "Iraqi Policemen" above the IP.
