Cool beans - I knew there was a plan to stop the freebies they gave guests ending up on eBay for big bucks. "They" were a bit upset that was what was happening......

When I tried to get a set, I was told they only made a very limited run but were planning on a larger run because so many wanted them.

Fab thanks for this. Been looking for these for a little while but the prices on eBay were outrageous!

In the very early days the commander wore a colour photocopy of the 99th ERS transfer taped to his flying suit because they had no patches, do you mean then? :D

COVID has scuppered their opportunities to sell them to more visitors at cost price which is why I believe the patch company guy has agreed to start selling them. The Arctic Dragons t-shirt I’m guessing was a very limited run.

It was probably a year or more ago,

There's a t shirt?

There was at the start of the deployment which is how we first knew they we called the Arctic Dragons, Dec 2019 time. It was the souvenir type rather than those they wear everyday under their OCPs or bag.
