Service in a Commando has not been established for those soldiers listed above.   All names link to more information about each individual.


Notes: Prior to the establishment of the Commando Basic Training Centre (CBTC),  from 1940 training was done on a Unit basis. Some later attended the CBTC for further training already confirmed as Commandos.  In 1943 some RM Battalions were simply redesignated as RM Commando units prior to their Commando training. Therefore a few who died in training at Achnacarry are shown on their Unit ROH. Additionally units other than Commandos trained at Achnacarry on occasions, so their names will be on their Regimental ROH.  If not listed here check the Roll of Honour [View] and Archive links below.
