Incredible photos of Britain’s first special forces unit | Daily Mail Online

These are the remarkable never-before-seen pictures of Britain’s first ever special forces unit.

The men of the Long Range Desert Group carried out clandestine operations deep behind enemy lines in the Second World War and were the ‘brains’ behind the SAS.

They also launched hit-and-run raids and gathered intelligence on German and Italian targets.

They carried out numerous missions in tandem with the SAS, using their unparalleled knowledge of the treacherous Sahara desert to guide the elite unit to enemy airfields where attacks would be launched.
