Hello to everyone. I joined a few days ago and have already had some great help in searching for some items. A great forum with tons of interesting posts. Thanks for the add. Best wishes to all, Mark.

Hi Sundance. Thanks for the message. Since I was a kid I’ve been interested in Special Forces. I’m not an expert just have an interest in them and the guys, what they are like etc. What kind of a person are they to do this work really intrigues me. So genuine SEAL and DEVGRU patches would be something I’d like to acquire. I don’t think I’d be lucky enough to find anything else from them. I’ve hopefully got a genuine Trident coming, it’s not issued but a genuine piece. SFOD-D also interests me. Obviously the British SAS and SBS, 101st and 82nd Airborne. 

 

I collect military watches and recently got a Benrus Type 1. 

 

What about you? What are your interests. 

 

Cheers Mark.

Hi Mark, welcome to the forum, I note that you are interested in special forces and use the SAS emblem as your avatar. Some years ago at a government auction orchestrated by the Blair government all the historic contents of the British Army pattern room were sold off. Several centuries of equipment patterns were disposed of, I managed to buy the sealed pattern for the 1964 SAS cap-badge, about three years ago I donated these to the SAS museum at Hereford.  Note the lead and the wax seal on the rear of the board. 

 

happy landings here,  lewis.
