    In order to keep the Mahdi Army Shoulder Boards together with the patches, i decided to post
    them here.
    The following is shoulder boards used by the Mahdi Army and led by the Shi'ite Cleric
    Moqtada al-Sadr.
    They are crudely made and of different lengths, even the same ones as a pair.
    The names are even embroidered opposite each other.
    First is Muqtada al-Sadr

    I have found out that many of these patches and shoulder boards are tightly controlled and impossible to get.
    I received a few pictures of similar patches and one of the shoulder boards in use.

    Mark,
    You are welcome. It pays to have a contact in Iraq to find the pictures.

    Guy looks the part but why the hell can't the Iraq military beat a bunch of untrained guys in Toyota pickup trucks (ISIS/ISIL)

    This is a great thread Bob, makes me homesick to start collecting again! Just have a soft spot for Iraq insignia!

    Chris,
    This uniform is sort of confusing. Is he active Special Forces wearing the shoulder boards of a Peace Brigade or is he a fighter in the
    Peace Brigade wearing a Special Forces Uniform and beret.
    I know soldiers in Iraq seem to wear whatever they want.

    Bob, unless things have changed and I doubt they have. The Iraq soldiers seem to put whatever they could on their uniform to "tart them up" Recall in the first years after democracy EVERY Iraq soldier had on the cloth jump wings knowing that Iraq hadn't trained any paratroops in quite some time.

    I think that's actually one of the appealing things about the iraq insignia, so much out there and little to no control of how/who wears it.
