'RN Beach Cdo. Roll of Honour'

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them."

This list of names has been put together from various sources and represents whom we believe may have served and died whilst in the RN Commandos. Many are listed by shore unit and not as RN Beach Commandos on the  Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) database.  Copies of official documents evidencing service in a Commando are necessary before the CWGC will amend their records. If such details are held by you please contact us so we can provide them to the CWGC.
