Default Lest We Forget: 41 Independent Commando

This year celebrates the 67th Anniversary of The Battle of the Chosin Reservoir. 41 Independent Commando Royal Marines was there and fought along side the 1st US Marine Division.

Did 41 Independent Commando wear a cloth formation sign? Did they have any insignia (cloth or metal) locally made in Korea or Japan?

1). For those wanting to know more about the Chosin Reservoir:

2). For those wanting to know more about 41 Independent Commando:

3). November 2001 Article in the Marine Corps Gazette:

These are the only two publications I know of on 41 Independent Commando.

I once had a copy of a USMC training manual which amongst many other things contained a history of the USMC complete with illustrations. It was all very gung-ho and exuded an air of superiority and I remember smiling to myself when I read the section on the Corps in Korea as above the annotation 'US Marines in Korea at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir' was a photograph which clearly showed members of 41 Independent Commando Royal Marines. They may have been wearing US uniforms but their berets and RM cap badges were clearly visible!
