Gator I wore the coveted Green Beret and was trained by former WW2 Cdos. (y)Commissioned twice, first time from the ranks. 80 next year. If only I was 32 again.:unsure:
Thank you for your service. Our Tier 1 units were modeled after the British commandos. Without our cousins like you god only knows where we'd be.

Congrats on the B-day. Time is a cruel mistress, haha.

I'am glad you like it, 3Cie REP intervention Chad Nov-Dec 1990. Note the small piece of cloth with elastic band over the flash suppressor to stop any dirt getting down the barrel "regards Pink Floyd

It's not unheard of for hunters to put a condom on their rifle moderators to keep rain or dust out, the difficult part is explaining to the wife why you need condoms when you claim to be going hunting šŸ˜

The ladies of Nicosia were not happy and took offence at the Lee Enfield 303 Mk 4 being adorned in such a manner.

In Southern China if a man is being cuckolded and his wife is having an affair the cognoscenti will say he is wearing a green hat. At the liberation WW2 of Hong Kong the locals were astounded and amused to see so many commando 'green berets. They asked if it was a wife swapping unit.

Chas what unit it was that guy who trained you? Where was he active during war? Do you have some stories from him to share with us?
On my recruit squad photo in the front row end right hand side you will see a Colour Sergeant.
You will note his medals. He was our Pln weapons instructor. His name was 'Dizzy' Dunsmore and he was an original commando finally serving with 43 in the Adriatic. His unit rescued (Green) Serge's father and gave their parachute silk to the local ladies. Dizzy also won the Queen's Medal at Bisley as the best military shot.
