I found this great photo today at the car boot sale, A gentleman from 3 Commando
That guy looks pretty formidable alright.
More photos of this gentleman, for Guy Hudson
A colour photo
I reckon that this photo was taken at the same place:
Have looked around the site to try and identify your man, what do you think:
What a great web site thanks Guy my gentleman has a Black watch cap badge
Enjoyed these photos vespa100. Thanks for posting. I was looking at the cap badge, thought it might be one of variant badges for the associated BW regiments, Canadian, South African and so on.
The man selling the photos at the car boot sale told me he sold the gents cap badge earlier on in the day, I said to him that they should never be split up, what a shame.
That is a shame, I always feel it is wrong to split items up such as this example. It takes away the personal angle and of course any provenance to the collection.
I have been to see the house clearance guy a brought these photos from today he said he also sold his insignia last week for a couple of pounds, people just don't know their history, what a shame they all got split up, but I did get this dance poster from him dated 1943 but with no commando connect
This is a photo of my gentleman when he was younger
Today I was given what I was told my gentlemans cap badges
Great photos and badges. Nice work trying to pull all the pieces back together
There's a better quality Troop photo in the Commando Veterans Association Forum.
Thanks No.4CommadoBairn I will have a look
The style of collar and use of number reminds me of old police uniforms. Is that the letters MP on his epaulette?
Any idea of his name?
Well done for trying to keep his belongings together the way they should be.
Separate names with a comma.
