    Now this is a right blast from the past Nick!
    I used to get Warlord, Victor, Battle and Hotspur comics and my grandparents would get me the Commando books. Do I wish that I had kept them all now? Hell yes!!!
    My set of badges from Warlord is long gone unfortunately, but I am sure that I've still got a few copies of the Commando books kicking around somewhere in the house, also think that I have a couple of copies of Warlord and Battle still.

    regards etc

    You can get compendiums of the commando books in reprint format, half a dozen or so copies in single volumes, there are quite a few for sale. commando books

    Great! I used to have 'Warlord' delivered every week and read it whilst having my breakfast before school. I seem to remember that the following day 2000AD was delivered. I was a 'Warlord' Secret Agent and thought, at the age of 12 or so, that Lord Peter Flint was the coolest chap around in 1975! I still have a huge stack in the attic somewhere.

    Thanks for posting and jogging those happy childhood memories.............before work, money, road rage, grey hair, weight gain and the self-pitying frustration of middle age with all its regrets for lost opportunities and broken dreams took hold. Phew! I think I'll read a comic!

    I don't think that one made it here to Oz-can't say I've ever heard of it-'Battle' and 'Commando' were sold here though...Did anyone collect 'War Monthly/Military History' (as it was renamed)?

    I used to read Battle Picture weekly and 2000ad ex UK and the good old Commando comics as a kid. I followed the WW1 Charley's War character in Battle for a few years as it was an interesting story line re an underage Infantry soldier on the Western Front. Ahh the memories flow.
    We called the Commando's "training pams" in my old Res. unit.

    All the best

    I used to buy the Commando comics whenever my pocket money would allow. Alas I have no idea whatever happened to them...

    In the Army the Commando comics were known as 'Officers Training Manuals'
