I remember the Brig - DSO, 3x MC. Are there some SKers here?

So besides being really really hard and tough they are also bonkers.

Thanks for the practical thoughts, chaps!

The Green Beret makes all Commando forces bullet proof. Thus the armour save is "humongous". Plus any Commando playing a bagpipe is classed as Terrifying.  :o

On the table perhaps. In the killing ground the Commandos (Army and RM)  of WW2 and the post war Royals were and are sadly mortal.

It was their reckless gallantry/skill at arms/mindset - all too often posthumous -that established their elan and reputation.
