Worth it for commando games in the future, I'll wager. I'm loving the .50cal, too, is it an airsoft conversion?

Oh and should you want to badge up your BD you'll be wanting 'no2 commando' shoulder titles for my lot and if you want it a combined operation s patch - although 1943 regs stated no insignia on the BD but this was ofter ignored.

third item down if you search for 'commando'

Lets us be a generic commando unit then.



There's a few of these listed on e-bay - may be cheaper than SOF ??

SS & Dagger - Officer's / Dagger only - OR's ?

shouldn't be too hard, i've got some mould making rubber knocking around. I'll have a look into it at some point if i get time.

Also, can you knock up a quick list of insignia needed for a 2 commando uniform? i've been trying to find references on the 'net with no luck.

I know i need the dagger (withough the 'SS' and 'commando' bits) for the cap badge, but even though it was discouraged, i was going to badge up a BD blouse to make it look like i've made an effort!

oh, and what colour beret?
