Default "Such is Life"

I hope that the "2 Sqn SASR" patch is a joke. The image is obviously Ned Kelly - hardly an Australian military hero!

I stand corrected, but I'm still amazed! If SASR has a Boat Troop will we see a Jolly Swagman patch? But seriously, I'm grateful for the information.

SASR and 1st and 2nd Commando Regiments have had a lot of different and interesting patches over the years. I've certainly seen a lot of different patches - all mostly very unofficial.
