Hi Ron, Thanks for posting the photos. Whilst it may seem obvious can you confirm in each photo shown on the other emails exactly which man is your Father taken from the aspect of 'as you look at the image 2nd from left' or whatever is the case , and whether you have any information about the others in them . I will then move them into the 7 Commando gallery.

If you would prefer to do this by email, my email address is below. Additionally if you have any other information about your father, service number, regiment from which attached to the Commandos, etc. please include that.

As regards the plaques or shields there were several of these over the years, one example being this one in our gallery.

Pete Rogers, son of LSgt Joe Rogers MM & nephew of TSM Ken McAllister. Both No2 Cdo. God and the Soldier, all men adore, In time of danger and not before. When the danger is passed and all things righted, God is forgotten, and the Soldier slighted.

hi Ron,

There was one for sale on ebay only last week...

I was after a No.5 Cdo plaque/shield the same as this one

but gave up hope of ever finding one - so I had one made!

The photo doesn't do it justice as the gold scrolls and blades are much brighter than on the photo.

The company I used and can recommend is
Uk based I know but it might be worth dropping them an email...
