Origins of patch and collar tags. I know Paul has loads of info on the patch design,many call it a spearhead, it was based on the stone arrowheads used by the plains indians.The crossed arrows were the insignia of the Civilian Scouts commanded by regular officers.Perhaps Fredrick thought of the toughness and self reliance of these guys when he established the Force. Perhaps even the suicide mission planned for Norway made him cast his mind back to Sandy Forsyth and Fred Beecher with thier fifty scouts who set out in 1868 to find hostile indians and engage them.They certainly managed this at a sandy island in the Arickee River when for eight days they held out against mass attacks from between 750-1500 Cheyenne,Sioux Arapaho and sundry renagades under Roman Nose the war chief of the Cheyenne Dog Soldiers. Roman Nose was killed in the ensuing battle.The last few days turned into a sniping match between the scouts and the indians.Less than ten of the scouts were killed or died of thier wounds. As the indians had killed or run off all the mules and horse.The four men sent to get help were forced to walk 80 to a 100 miles across the open prairie playing hide and seek with hostiles on horseback. As Alex Hailey said in his novel ROOTS. You gotta know who you is.The Scouts only had a lifespan of the Indian Wars once they were over the Scouts disappeared.Thier Legend lives on,much the same with with the Force.

As a little add-to for my last post.Many of the Tribes had men serving as scouts with the army,maybe just to settle old scores, who knows the real motive. Perhaps that was where the Chiefs and Braves originated. Food for thought.Most of the oddball outfits that become legends have thier origins in the past ,not in SOF's warehouse or similar. There is more to belonging to our unit than just dressing up and waving a gun about. Wheat from the Chaff guys thats what it's all about!

Guys is this true or the words of a silly little man ?
Commercial events and those supposedly set up to raise money for charity will always have a lower standard of entry if indeed they even set a standard, they NEED the groups, the pictures appearing on this site proves this :wink: :evil:

Phil, have given your post some carefull consideration,yes it did take some time.
Commercial Events paying public comes to see!
Charity Events paying public comes to see.
Private Battle, unrealistic shambles of total inaccuracy,reenactors foot the bill in total.
Other Private events, we outwardly they look good but content lacking.People talking about modern cars, modern music and football,sorry soccer.
Where is the realism in any of this. Go for a meal with your group in England pay in Pounds and Pence,realism blown out of the water. Go for a meal in europe pay in Euros realism blown out of the water. So what is authenticity and standards? the best we can do on the day in an unnrealistic enviroment? We are hamstrung by the modern world so we all got to do the best we can. How do you see it?

It's not over,just advancing in a differnt direction. The invite to SoF was for an Airborne/Infantry theme.There was no scope for doing anything else, they were guests of the French and they are getting a whole lot better organised now and the rules are the rules. When they do the Force over there they do the Force,when they do the beach and Airlandings they do it. It was not our show it was theirs so thats it.It shows quality to be able to slot in and do what is required and that iss what the guys did,I say they were a credit to the group. They achieved much with diplomacy and compliance to the wishes of the organisers and wearing correct uniforms.
No doubt they would rather have done the Force, that was n't an option.
If you had gone over there doing what you wanted regardless, you would n't get invited again,it's happened to another group.You did a lot of work making the contacts the guys built on your good work. I think you are getting uptight over nothing more than a good PR operation by the guys.
Have another drink and look at things from a slightly less jaundiced eye and you can see they carried it off well. If you can't win be the best second place they ever seen!
