No.1 Commando insignia grouping.
A grouping of insignia from No.1 Commando\'s service in Burma and the Far East. Starting with a cast brass \' Commando \' shoulder title with typically Far Eastern wire loops, probably worn on the epaulette. A hand embroidered cotton on wool \' S.E.A.C.\' shoulder title with an issue machine embroidered Commando Group sleeve badge. All the cloth insignia shows clear signs of having been removed from a tunic and was found with another identical set. I would suggest that this insignia dates from 1945 and was probably mounted on a \' going home battledress \' which were invariably heavily ornamented. In good, clean condition. Uncommon.
