Idly looking at the Army.Mod site and saw the link to the latest bunch of Dustys the Super Special Forces Special Support Group (We are Special).

Shhhhhh

This is apparently their emblem



Now am I wrong or have I seen some of this before???????

Hmm, I'd accuse those responsible, of crass insensitivity, but sadly, they are probably more guilty of ignorance and stupidity. Will this just be a small subdued badge worn on the sleeve, or will it be a repeated motif running down the seam of each leg and emblazoned 18" x 12" across the back of their smocks? :roll:

I think they will look fetching on each lapel and as gorget tabs on Blues / Browns.

The will have "Dusty's Own SFSFSFGGS" armbands also.

why the exitement? The SS insignia was two nordic runes, ie letters of a dead and somewhat mythogical alphabet, with squared off bottom and top to the motif. This looks like a flash of lightening to me, with a pointy bottom, presumeably to denote striking quickly etc etc.

If any of them want the SS collar dogs, they can go here

I thought that the

"Well if you WERE actually looking for the real thing - as you do - if you collect nazi stuff..... er.... then here are some links I happen to have."

post was a little - well - odd.

To find it contaminated with nanosyph is no surpise!

I think the real "Oooh that's a bit fascist" issue is that this looks remarkable like the BUF insignia.

I am not surprised that half the Waffen SS are well and living in Wales, the other half have been running boarding houses and B&Bs in many of Britain's coastal resorts for years and years...Von sossitch und two rashers verdammte turist pig-dog, ah goot the rain comes und for you ze holiday ist ofer!

It does look like the sort of thing you'd see on the album cover of an extremely bad Scandinavian heavy rock band called ACID SKORPIUN!!! or BLADE FURY!!!

SAS badge = cool

SRR badge = cool

This badge? Hmmm.

well sorrrreeee how was I supposed to know, it didnt hit me, and i apologise, I thought it was an amusing site, and mentioning it certainly doesn't make me a cnut, prat or anything else, but calling me one may put you in that category
