Default Thoughts on the Commando shoulder titles

Found these at my friend's place, any thoughts or information on originality and age would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Top three good genuine items.
No.9 Possibly good - reverse looks a bit bright but may be the light - a similar variant was made
No.10 - personally, not for me on first glance ...
All would pertain to WW2 if correct

N°10 COMMANDO is a reproduction. Others are WW2 originals.

2 Medical Commando looks good with the leaning "O" - a good sign. Would like seeing a closer look at the back however just to be sure.

Yep, 2 Medical Commando looks good from the front and the back. A very nice one to have too!

Now to find... well, and afford a 1 Medical Commando!
