    In Four Five The story of 45 Commando Royal Marines 1943 - 1971' by David Young a unit flag was introduced, dark green with a red dagger in the centre and the numbers 45 on either side. Seems each troop had their own flag or sign coming into prominence in early 1945. 'A' Troop had The Saint figure from Leslie Charteris's Saint, B Troop nicknamed Butcher Troop had a white cleaver with the motto 'Bash on Regardless', C Troop had the Union Flag with Globe and Laurel with various Commando battle honours and D Troop always known as 'Dog Troop' had the colourful Walt Disney's Pluto with green beret and dagger between his teeth.
