    When to a little army surplus store today and dug around in the used patch box.Found these patchs,the Arabic one i was wondering what it is.The Ironsides one i thought was a theater made but im rethinking that Sad but for a $1 each not sweating it.

    Thanks

    Would just add that the text translates to Iraqi Police. There are other similar police oriented scrolls with different text designations.
