Very nice, focused collection indeed.

What is the little red stripe under the Beach TRF that the MP is wearing? I know the HG wore one for having completed training under new revised methods and on newer weapons. However, I doubt the stripe worn by the MP is the same kind of indicator.

Terry,
It is the ‘Arm of Service’ strip for the CMP

I enjoyed this thread and thought I'd add a few photos of the RAF Combined Ops Balloon Teams.
