EDITORS COMMENTS
At the dawn of a new year, a powerful symbol of unity emerges among the brave men serving in Combined Operations Command. In this photo print, thousands of sailors, marines, soldiers, and airmen proudly display their newly acquired badge. For the first time in history, servicemen from Britain, its Dominions, America, and Allied Forces are entitled to wear the same emblem - an emblem that represents their unwavering commitment to the United Nations. The badge itself is a striking combination of red on blue and remains identical across all three Services. It features a stockless anchor symbolizing the sea forces alongside a Tommy gun representing land forces. Completing this triumvirate is an eagle signifying air power. Notably inspired by the American insignia design, it serves as a testament to our inclusion of United States personnel within our ranks. Men hailing from both the United States and Allied Forces associated with Combined Operations Command will don this prestigious badge in accordance with British Service regulations. As we enter December 1942 amidst World War II's turmoil, let us remember these courageous individuals who stand united under one banner for peace and freedom. This remarkable photograph captures not just an image but also echoes through time as a reminder of sacrifice and camaraderie within our armed forces during this pivotal era.
