    Unknown Afghan made patches - 1 Norwegian and 1 French?

    Post by DeOpressoLiber on Thu Aug 27, 2015 11:39 am

    Hi all,

    I recently got these patches but I'm having a hard time ID'ing them.
    The first one looks like a Norwegian Jekerkommando patch since the dagger looks like the one on their patch.
    According to google translate "det viktigste er å delta" means "the most important thing is to participate".


    The second one seems to be French. It says "R C L chasser la misère" on top, and E3T on the bird's chest.
    On the anchor there's number 515, not sure what that stands for.
    I assume this is a patch for one of the commando units?


    Thanks in advance!

    Fred

    "CHASSER LA MISERE" is COMMANDO GEORGES's motto...

    Could it be that the Norwegian patch is one of the Beredskapstroppen Delta; Norway's CT unit ?
    They were involved in the UN's Special Team 6 in Kosovo for years so obviously operate outside of Norway. Perhaps they are/were active in Afghhanistan as well ? Foud tons of articles, but unfortunately Norwegian isn't my forte.
