    These are a recent pick up, Iraq or Afghan ? no id's any help appreciated. The one with the tiger may relate to some sort of brigade, the white one on the bottom may relate to a school thanks, Matt

    The top right patch is Lebanese

    Ok Thanks, for the info. I needed a start point to dig for an id, after finding an ebay listing for a similar item I noticed an unsold item similar to the white patch listing it as Palestine Army Special forces, here is a link

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Palestine-Army-pin-badge-Syria-Lebanon-PLO-PLA-Special-Forces-/182939628725?rmvSB=true&nma=true&si=iJOhcxhGkk6tBir4j5w%252FoqdE4QA%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    Also with that i found the tiger patch as a shoulder badge for Lebanon Commando-
    "Commando Light Infantry Special Operations Forces"

    Awesome Very Happy. I knew the first patch because I recently acquired a 5th Group SGM's uniforms, and he had a foreign uniform and cap with his stuff. Turned out to be from Lebanese from when he was training them.
