    Default RM Commando Pin/Badge

    Hello all,

    Sorry if I've posted this to the wrong section. My grandfather was a Royal Marines Commando during the 50's and 60's. I have been going through his stuff and came across this RM Commando pin/badge. Does anyone know whether its an issue or private purchase item?

    Thanks
    Alex

    Thanks kradman. I have a few items from his service days which will never leave my possession. I just hope my son has the same interest in family history.
