Commando Roll of Honour for WW2

Roll of Honour of Army and Royal Marine Commandos in WW2

The Roll of Honour on our website contains the names of those Commandos who were killed in action or died of wounds whilst engaged on, or after being engaged on, an action attached to a specific Commando Unit. It also includes those who were subsequently executed whilst a Prisoner of War after such an action,  those who died on active service, and/or in training, whilst attached to a Commando Unit, and those Commandos who were taken prisoner of war and died in captivity. It may contain names of those who died whilst on a detachment from their Commando if we are unsure as to the extent of that detachment.
 
We are additionally in the process of adding detail about each individual where known. Click/touch any highlighted names for that detail. Criteria for official military rolls of honour may differ slightly. 
 
Our online ROH does not include those who were killed whilst attached to another Regiment having been transferred from, or posted out of, a Commando Unit.
