    I recently picked up this Police windbreaker. Seller said it was a bringback from Afghanistan. I saw it and thought it may have been Iraqi Police, but Lance resurrected a SPI/E rig thread last night in the US section and I saw a similar windbreaker being worn by ANP.

    Here is the windbreaker for your viewing. Size is small. Not sure who made this piece. The writing on the jacket is actually a grey color and not white as the pictures show.

    Hi Arch,

    Nice one. The amount of different wind breakers and jackets the ANP was wearing was massive while I was there.
