    I thought that Commandos had the compass in the heel. I don't remember Wayfinders'- I thought they were called Pathfinders and had something on the sole?

    Interestingly Easy Tilbury was the site of the Bata shoe factory, which was surrounded by a "model village" of houses for workers, which still is nicknamed "Bataville".

    I had a pair of Tuf shoes in the early 80's. Prefered Clarkes though.

    And here are some pictures of a pair of the Wayfinders in the box, you can see the animal print sole and the compass in the heel.

    I don't recall Wayfinders. I remember the Commando's badge and having one of those but the shoes were nothing remarkable. I went more for trainers, even at school.

    I'm reading Things ain't what they used to be by Phil Glenister. He mentions Commando's having a compass in the heel so maybe there is something in it. He also mentions wayfinders by way of the animal footprint as he can't remember the name.
