    Thank V,

    Most of it is pretty old, but once in awhile, some good ones make their way into my clutches...

     

     

    The Froggy patch is for a US SF Combat Diver qualified A Team ( not Seals ). The other is from a Halo qualified A Team.

    South Africa  Railway Police , Reece ( scorpion ) patches                                                                                                                                                                   Finnish



    rip....

    The red scorpion on saffroun backround is not Recce even the symbolic is also used on the badge worn by 2 Recce Regiment (disbanded)
    There were 3 Hunter Group badges:
    - Hunter Group volunteers (red scorpion on saffron backgroound)
    - Hunter Group instructor (silver grey scorpion on green background)
    - Hunter Group qualification badge (black scorpion on saffroun background)

    Also a blaze badge and 2 types of para wings (métal and embtoidered)
    The beret was the green infantry beret worn with 2 patterns of camo

    Needless to say all these articles are very scarce and those on the market (the badges) are mainly repros (I've repros too)

    Thanks for your input,

    I do believe the  Hunter Group scorpion image  was adopted by 2 Recee .
