    The beret would have been Green. Flashes were red on black.

    Jerry, Here is a colorization I did for you of your new acquisition. I'm not sure if the lanyard or cap insig is correct, but I researched and did the best I could. Too many variations to make a 100% proper choice. I'd be happy to change anything you'd like......tried my best to give this commando's photo some justice.
