So sad that all these men died so close to the end of the war.
If you could post the photos, that would be a great help.
It's simply a membership card in booklet form and was given to every member along with the badge.
I think the number on the badge matches the number in the Old Comrades Association of the Special Service Brigade booklet. If you can find the little blue member's book you might be in luck.
Looks like a 'foreign weapons' course. Commandos were trained to use captured enemy weapons in case the need ever arose.
Looks as though he is carrying a stretcher.
Sad that it ends up on Ebay.
Can anyone tell me what the pass rate was on the Commando course ?
I have a copy of 'Greece & Crete 1941' by Christopher Buckley. No mention of any Spanish Commandos but a very good account of the battle.
Rescorle, an unusual name. Anybody know where that came from ?
Difficult to make out any shoulder patches but they look like Commandos to me.
Well, I don't know about anybody else but I found that post by Nic extremely interesting. Quite a few things I didn't know.
Already gone, sorry.
Are these the same three men but photographed from behind ?
I think you may have problems tracing his movements after this. He could have moved anywhere in the UK or even overseas. Good luck in your search.
