If its for a one off and you have a few bob get a set of Denims from replicatore.

If that is too much 47 pattern BD, I know warren has some, and you should be of unless you are realy big.

You dont wear any insignia on a denison

Only rank

and if jump qualified parawings on the sleeve, breast if sas.

Some troops on the merville assault wore recognition patches painted on the breast pocket but its incredibly rare

the cap badge... I've seen three types for No2.

- just the dagger
- dagger + "S S"
- dagger + "S S" and "commando"

Image

The difference?

not sure about difference between the two with SS on, but just the dagger was for EM, and the ones with SS on were for officers, from what i've found out so far.

Have been looking at this for a while .....

Best/easiest I could come up with was buying a 'normal' rubber training knife for cheap (ebay again :roll: ) - not the fake shiny ones but matt black rubber - and trimming it down to shape.
Then get black twine/thin para-type cord and wind around the grip.
If the pommel doesn't look right, a bolt/knob etc can always be screwed into the top of the grip ....

Sign us up for No.2 Commando please. Anne with sten, me with bren.

Would it be a bit stupid turning up to a CQB fight with a bren?
