Commando "Light Raiding Order" as seen on the French Coast 1942
Winston Churchill called for the commandos to strike at the enemy wherever they be and from 1941 to 1944 many 100's of small raids were conducted up and down the French and Belgium coast by Commandos
This Commando is in Light Fighting Order ready to be dropped off by a small patrol boat to go and raid any German Military buildings or capture German soldiers to be brought back for information.
He wears very basic kit need for the raid, a knitted commando cap instead of a steel helmet, Woolly jumper to keep him warm on the cold nights but allowing him flexibility to move and making it easier to climb that with his BD jacket on. On his chest he has the light Assault vest carrying spare ammo and grenades, tied around his waist is the toggle rope help to climb up or down a rocky crag and attached by his BD leg pocket is the legendary Commando dagger. His kit is finished off with a pair of rubber soled boots so he could sneak up to the enemy without making a noise like the steel studded ammo boots would have done, sometimes even PT shoes were worn for the same purpose.
