Here is a photo of my 2nd pattern 5 Commando title. I think these were worn after Mike left the Congo but neither versions of this patch grow on trees.

I just recently saw this thread and thought I would add Katanga Jump wings that were from this short lived country. The middle set of jump wings is serial numbered. The larger wings at the top were reportedly worn by mercenaries and very few were made. All these examples came from Belgium source.
