This is a copy of the adaptation of the WWII No.2 Commando officer’s cap badge that was used as a beret badge by the post war Commando Association. (The original wartime badges did not have the word ‘Commando’ on them and Other Ranks badges were just a dagger without the ‘SS’.)

Thank you both for the 'heads up'. Commando items not my special area of interest, so glad I could double-check.

Much appreciated!
