Default SAS/Para Veteran's Grouping..?

Hi Gents,

Full disclosure; all items I'm asking about will be offered as a group in the future.

So I've just received a grouping of items on consignment from a gent who served in the Paras and possible the SAS, I believe in the 1970's. I would like to go through the insignia piece by piece to determine any details, such as authenticity, period, rarity and of course value.

The first item I picked out is an SAS beret patch.

Any thoughts or comments greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Roy
