Arnhem - Great examples! I have not seen those patterns before. I did not realise there was such variation in these early items.

J-B - I always like your montages - they provide great context.

Jerry - You have some great items too - your albums are very well put together and clearly labelled etc.

I am really pleased I ask the question starting this thread, I am learning a lot and it has produced some quality items. We have a great Forum here.
Mike

Great badges thanks for sharing it amazing how much different variations there exist of SAS beret badges (and jump wings) for such a small unit. Cheers JB
