Patrol Flag – Here’s a guide to making your patrol flag:

Commando (Toggle) Rope – The toggle rope came into prominence in World War II with Commandos who often in the course of duty had to scale walls, climb cliffs, cross ravines. Instead of carrying long, bulky ropes, each Commando had a 6-foot length of ½ inch rope, with an eyesplice in one end and a toggle in the other, secured with an eye-splice. The open eye splice was just large enough to allow the toggle to fit through and be held firmly. The Commandos carried these ropes around their waists. To make a long rope, several toggle ropes were simply interlocked.
