The 'Old Comrades Association of the Special Service Brigade' was formed on the 20th June 1943 at the Commando Basic Training Centre, Achnacarry. In February 1946 their first newsletter announced a change of title to 'Old Comrades Association of the Army Commandos."
In March 1950 their Newsletter No.10 noted the decision by the Committee to in future simply refer to the association as the 'Commando Association', adding that their full descriptive title would remain in their records and accounts.
Some 60 years later that most esteemed Association made a decision to stand down, finally holding their Stand Down Parade and Drum Head Service at Portsmouth on the 18th September 2005 [view images].
However some members wished to continue as a group and had already formed a new Association in 2003 titled the 'Commando Veterans Association'.
In 2019 the 'Commando Veterans Association' made a decision to redesignate their title to 'Commando Association'. This change was implemented on 1st June 2019.
