I started last year whilst in America, our grandson wanted a drawing for a school project, so I drew this and when I returned home I drew a few more.

I've put the posting under Just for laughs? Giving x stitching a rest this winter for fun I tried my hand at drawing, these are only two of the forty or so I've drawn over the last few months, getting better SLOWLY? Hope you like them?

Some badges I think were without the Commando lettering l could be wrong?
Kevin
I would surmise that service records were pretty accurate, even more so "if on loan" to the Commando,(as all Commandos were on loan and were on their regimental pay roll). An individuals movements within units, leave, transfer etc, are well documented in his service record.
But records of service within the Commando, other than photographic and perhaps family accounts are a bit harder to verify.
If available a soldiers pay book would hold far more info of a soldiers movement, as his pay book went where he went.

I think that he may have been in X troop, I've read somewhere that members of X troop changed their names to a more British sounding names to avoid reprisals if they were captured. They were based in Aberdyfi. Is there any connection to Wales.
They were attached to many different units during their formation. And might have been known by their adopted nom de plume and reverted back after the war?

Hi Dan, is it possible for you to add the photos on this website, as I am not a member of ww2talk and do not have download authority on their web site.
Cheers

How can i find out if Mike Calvert O/C or any other officers of 142 were on sick leave on or around 30th July 1942.

Hi Nick, I totally agree with your comments regrading 204 and SSD1 - 2.
Most of the information official and unofficial has been added on this site over the past few years. Any on line searches only provides the "Official" information?
As you know some of the information will not be released for a further 40 years, !Ouch still hot!
I still remember the reply I received, when I mentioned what (allegedly) some of 204s tasks involved.(Who told me, when was I told etc. etc.). I was honestly awaiting a knock on the door by hooded men, that's how strong I felt the reply I received.
Kevin
There is a book The Lost Sons of Penycae written by Barry Jones.
