    I've amassed a huge collection of post Hussein Iraq military insignia. As I get around to it, I'll start posting here. The Iraq insignia is quite interesting in it's construction. All are cut edge as opposed to a merrowed edge(merrowed edge on US type patches where the embroidery wraps around the edge of the patch). Many are hand guided machine sewn by tailors much like the local mades during the vietnam war.

    I try to pair pics from my collection with pics of the insignia in actual use, makes for a more meaningful record.

    A cool subject.

    The first batch are all ca 2004-5 8th Iraqi Division patches, and various sub units of 8ID.
