Commando SBS shoulder title.
A hugely scarce title \'COMMANDO S.B.S.\', Special Boat Squadron shoulder title. Embroidered red on blue with a rough woven cotton backing and clearly having been removed from a uniform. Some moth damage which does not greatly detract.
The SBS were formed from the Army Commandos, initially being formed as the Folboat Section, No.8 Commando. Two squadrons of the SBS were formed in 1942 with No2 Squadron going on to be amalgamated with COPPS.
