    Very nice! The only pocket badge I have is an AMF-Ace Mobile Force.

    Pierre could you please put dates with these badges so we know exactly when they were worn. Thank you.

    Hello Adam;

    I would love to put dates on them but at the moment I don't have a clue until I get a similar collector who could help me in identifying them on the era.

    Regards
    Pierre

    Hi guys,

    I know that it's been 2 yrs since the last on this, but I just joined. Hope this helps somewhat. I served on the Golan in '75-'76 and the first badge up is the one I wore while at Camp Ziouani, on the border between Israel and Syria. Nice enamelled badge in the UNDOF ribbon colours with the title bar and UN device attached over the shield. Later versions, same size and design but were etched on one flat piece of metal, like the old "beer can" insignia from Vietnam. Don't know when the change was made, but the pictured badge is the early version. Also, staff types in the HQ in Damascus had "UNDOF HQ" on the bar on top, so that badge is from someone at the camp. Ah...rec runs to Tiberias, Maccabees beer at Duddick's Pizzeria and Pub, Sea of Galilee. Brings back memories.

    Stay safe and have fun. Cheers!

    Ian B

    Oh My Lord, I have to pay closer attention. I am just seeing this topic for the first time. Unfortunately, I am of no use in identifying any of these pocket badges.

    Ian B, thanks for stepping in here and sharing some of your knowledge and experience.
