The military police badge was
worn by Irish MP's who were assigned to the MP Coy UNFICYP.
The UNMEE badge is a pin type and was worn by personnel in UNMEE HQ, it was not an Irish unit badge.
UNTSO is one of the oldest missions and has its headquarters in Jerusalem. The abbreviation stands for "United Nations Truce Supervisory Organisation". Observers who are assigned to UNTSO have been and some cases still are based in a number of locations e.g. Israel, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and Egypt. Because of the variety of locations and in the absence of cloth badges a whole series of pocket badges were introduced to indicate where the wearer was serving.
