Memorials and Cemeteries

Commando memorialThere are many memorials across the world dedicated to Commandos. This section begins with the memorial to the Commandos located at Spean Bridge in the area where Commando training began, and where large numbers of Commandos, their families, and their friends, still gather each November in remembrance.

Additionally you will find guidelines that have been agreed on the scattering of ashes and the placement of plaques at the Area of Reembrance at the Commando Memorial, Spean Bridge.

Detail relating to the Commando Memorial at Westminster Abbey is also included, as is detail of a new memorial to commando training, The Gibraltar Stone,  on Woodbury Common near Lympstone . More detail about other Memorials will be added in due course.

A full list of Commando memorials across the world can be found on page 30 onwards on this document about The Commando Association.
