    Can anyone ID this patch? It is covered with plastic on the front and has Velcro on the back.

    Thanks in advance.

    I had my friend in Iraq translate you patch and it is a Kurdish Arm Patch.
    The Kurdish writing must be a different Arabic as he had a harder time to translate it but this is what
    he came up with.
    Translation above: the Emergency Police
    Left: not sure, mostly - Loyalty to Iraq (in Kurdish)
    Right: Kirkuk Police (in Kurdish)
    Not 100% positive on the ESU but think it is for Emergency Support Unit (my thoughts).

    After a google search on Kirkuk Emergency Support Unit I found a picture on militaryphotos.net of this patch worn by an Iraqi army Emergency Services Unit soldier. Thanks for the help, Bob.
