Seriously... WOW :o What an awesome collection!

So many of the tiger stripes that I see go for so much $$$ don't have documented stories behind them.

These are priceless!

Guessing he had some connection to 9th ID LRRPs by the beret. Love how the beer can has no paint left. Salty.

Thanks for sharing these.

Looks like Frank Cashmore far left. Danny and 1 or 2 more SAS did some ops with November platoon SEAL Team 1 at Dong Tam 1971. In turn some SEALs went and did week long recons with the SAS.
