'Special Service Roll of Honour'

The Fallen commemorated in perpetuity by the Commando Veterans Association.

 

The names below were men who were attached to the Special Service Battalions, or the Special Service Brigade, later renamed the Commando Brigade,  when they died. They may have served in different capacities and include Commando Signallers and Royal Engineers.  Some names may be shown elsewhere on specific Commando Unit Rolls of Honour because that was their unit with whom they primarily served.  Consider using our search facility if a name is not shown here and you think it should.  Contact us if you have any information or queries.
