Changed Patrick's backstory, having him stay in the RAF and end up in the Auxiliary Air Force via a Special Reserve squadron.

SAS emblem does have a sword. :s

At the absolute simplest, a shoulder arch with 'Excalibur Squadron' on it, and maybe have something akin to the SBS cap badge beneath it rather than the soaring Eagle thing - a sword superimposed over two blue waves to indicate that it's coming out of the water.

Like this, with the uniform in general probably looking something akin to this.

Would we replace the RAF eagle with it, or would we wear it lower on the sleeve like the CO badge that the corporal in battledress is wearing?

Soz. Not sour grapesing, just wasn't sure about my schedule so I didn't want to make a pilot char right away. I did have that ultimately in mind.

Lemme think about it. :P

I'd say...lower on the sleeve would be my preference, but I defer if anyone's got a better idea.

I'll try and draw up a patch this weekend.

Tigger, are there any elements you want in it besides the sword rising from the water?

TJ, you are our artsy hero.
Besides the sword, which kinda has to be there, it is all up to you. I'd be happy to give feedback on specific ideas you may have, but otherwise, go to town.

Reading through Ritcher's bio makes me think that he and Gerlof may have flown together at Guadalajara, or at least in the defense of Madrid.

Ok, decided not to go with the Spanish Civil War for Patrick.

Instead I went for a second stint with the RAF's armoured car companies during the 1936-39 Arab revolt in Palestine before a brief conversion to the Hawker Hurricane just before the outbreak of WW2.

Oh hee hee hee, you hid that all under the spoiler a bit too well
Man, I can't promise anything, but I'll keep an eye on it for sure.

Also, just want to set a deadline for myself: I'm hoping that I can get the OP for Operation GRYPHON up by tomorrow night! Yay!
In addition to the OP, I'm also working on a nifty new little feature that I'm hoping can be a useful adjunct to the RP. I'm calling it "The Excalibur Files", and they'll be formatted as relevant little intelligence summaries about the people, units, vehicles, and other historical worldbuildy stuff we run into in the course of our operations. I've already got 8-10 ready to go for GRYPHON!

Fun fact: the cocktail that Steve mentions during the Ping Island raid (the "rum cannonball") is apparently entirely fictional and was invented for the movie, but there's a whole bunch of recipes online where people try and guess at how you would make one. They all sound dangerously tasty.
