Right.... Keep having to be reminded of that little fact that "Spetz" is an all encompassing term not being one specific unit/battalion.
Aren't the Royal Marines supposed to be "British Commandos"? (or at least what became of them after WWII). It would stand that you'd want to protect their identities.
OK.... what about PPCLI do they get their faces blanked out? (Well I assume some would at least but do they all?)
