As early as 1940 political leaders and military commanders responsible for the conduct of the Allied operations realized that, after a string of disastrous setbacks, national morale could only be restored by taking offensive action against the enemy. With the limited resources, available Churchills stirring call to set Europe ablaze called for unconventional solutions and action.
From these uncertain beginnings was born a plethora of Allied Special Force units. Inevitably, some are household names but others are little known, having had brief and covert existences in far flung parts of the world.
All, however, had distinctive identities and their proudly worn insignia represent a fascinating and often elusive challenge for military collectors. This is due, not just to the scarcity of items in many cases, but to the mystery of their origin; a number of these units were established on an ad hoc and spontaneous basis.
