I'd like some SAS stuff too. Actually there is no point. I'd only go and Iron/starch crispy creases all over it and attack anything that doesn't shine with brasso. Ah well. Mind you those windproof smock things do look a bit snug. Never been able to get my hands on one for free and am too tight to fork out my cash on work clothes.
Question is what do you want it for. Do you want to pretend you are in the SAS? Do you want to flog it and make vast profits from blokes who want to pretend they are in the SAS?
Can you knit because my grandma has a patern for balaclavas somewhere... They even have bobbles on top.
Wow, sorry guys. I didn't mean to cause such a stir.
My name is Phil (Phillip to be exact). I am currenty a police officer in California (Tracy-Paul on this board knows that). I was a US Marine, for 4 years on active duty, with the 2nd Battlion, 6th Marines, and 8 years in the reserves (your TA). Just a regular grunt, no special forces, notta, nothing. I did spend 11 months in Beruit, in 1983, with the Peace Keeping Forces there.
As another said, yes I am an avid military collector. I happen to find just about anything British fascinating and have gone to the UK a total of 7 times. I've visited all countries there and I also have a fascination with the war in NI. Just about every book on NI, I can find, I've read, etc.
Having said all of that, yes, I do collect certain items of the SAS. I don't want it to be a "poser," etc. It was merely for a personal collection, as others collect stamps, coins, etc.
Phil, come and share some of your kit on the Military Collectors Network @ http://www.milcol.net/No Walts, just guys who are interested and collect to differant areas of military interest from all parts of the world.
