    Interesting they are using Velcro backed plastic for patches like these. I would think they would be just so stiff and unbending they would get in the way. Of course the pictures look much better on a plastic back then when printed. I have noticed a lot of commanders have their pictures all over everything; might be some ego at work there. Thanks for sharing Bob.

    Bob, those are just fantastic pieces. Well done!

    I just about choked at the irony of Muqtada Al Sadr wearing camouflage battle dress with the dove in the background!

    Also very funny that these fundamentalist sects seem to have forgotten about the taboo of husing human imagery in artwork! They do seem to be learning about the marketing concept of "branding" however!

    Thanks for sharing these with us.

    Plastic patches in use like the ones in post #59.
    The pictures come from Facebook and the images are from Haider Abu Rzq.

    I love how they now add faces. Maybe that is the justification for going with metal patches. Thanks Bob

    One of my recent purchases from Iraq.
    A newer League of People's Righteous Arm and Chest Patch.
    made of plastic with Velcro backing.

    It seems there are always different versions of patches coming out. That is what
    keeps us collecting. A nice grouping you have there from your time in Iraq.
