Good evening, again, GG400.
Don't worry, I'm not stalking you; I just don't seem to have moved far from the screen today.

Being a thick civvie, I don't know what they are, but there are Berlin Patches listed on eBay, but not like the one you have pictured:

http://shop.ebay.co.uk/items/__berl...w&crlp=1521119621_225916&keyword=berlin+patch

I don't know if your "sprog" post was deliberately in the "Juniors" forum, but this shouldn't be in "Current Affairs", which is for serious analysis.

You may wish to post in the Militaria forum .... here:

or QMs and MT ... here:

Or the forum moderator might move the thread for you.

Don't worry about it. Most of us are sorry that we posted in the FIRST place, never mind the WRONG place.

www.montyslocker.co.uk - they embroider them and compared to the originals: well, you will be hard pressed to tell the difference. If you don't see them on the website, just email the chap. Very helpful, ex-mob tell him I put you in touch. :wink:

Been in touch, and he is going to make me up a couple.
Many thanks for the link. :D

For those of of us too young to remember, care to shed some light on why troops needed a special patch just because they were based in Berlin during the cold war.

Hi there,
The patch shows a red circle which represents the red army that surrounded Berlin, after the war ended Berlin was an isolated island in the middle of russian controlled east Germany.

SK, it wasn't only the British Berlin Infantry Bde that wore identification flashes. The Divisions in BAOR also wore them. If I remember correctly, 2 Armd Div flash was a mailed fist. I can't remember the others. The issuing of Bde/Div flashes seems to have been discontinued sometime in the 70's. We weren't issued with a flash in Munster in 1980, and I was stationed in Berlin from 1987 to 1990, and the Berlin flash had long been consigned to history by then.
