Hi

I was wondering whether someone would have some detailed information, or know where I could find it, on communications equipment used by army commando units. I am trying to put together both combat and Bde. HQ kit/gear. So far, I have have been lucky enough to get a WS38 MKII*. Should a WS 22 or the WS 18 be the next step?

Any information, would be very welcome.

Thanks

Antoine A.

WS18 would be a nice addition to your collection.

Do you do Army Commando re-enacting, could you post some images?

Dear Guy

Thanks a lot for your quick reply. The information and pictures are most useful to me and give me some ideas on what to add to my collection next.

Re your question, I am part of a group reenacting as a Commando group (No 4 Commando) and I have just developed an interest on communications. We also do LRDG and airborne, although we reenact mainly as commando group.

I have attached three pictures.
