46RM Commando

History of the Unit

On the 1st August 1943 whilst based at 'A' camp, Piddlehinton, Dorset,  the 9th RM Battalion was redesignated as No. 46 Royal Marine Commando, Royal Marines. Within a week the unit had moved to Poundbury West Camp in Dorchester, quickly changing to its new smaller Commando establishment.  Those not required for any reason for Commando training were gradually moved to Training centres for landing craft and/or other vessel duties.  

In September  advance parties led by Major Lee and Lt. Nunn (both later killed in action) were sent to Troon with the rest of the Commando joining them there on the 15th September. The Commando had already been issued with their Green berets at this stage, parading in Dorchester wearing them on the 11th September before their departure.  

The Commando moved to the Commando Depot, Achnacarry on the 23rd October 1943. On completion of their Commando training course at Achnacarry on the 9th November, the Unit moved back to Troon briefly, before being sent to CTC Dorlin in December for further training, and were re-assigned briefly to the 1st Special Service Bde under Lord Lovat. On completion of this additional training, the Unit moved to Worthing to link up with the rest of the Bde.  arriving there on the 19th December. At the end of the month the Commando was ordered to move to Folkestone and rejoin 4th Special Service Bde. This took place on the 3rd January 1944.  Two troops were sent at this time to the CMWTC at St Ives for a 3 week course in cliff climbing and rock assault.   [Source : War Diary]

All this training was focussed on one thing - the allied invasion of North West Europe.

At 0900 on the 7th June 1944 the Unit was landed on Nan White Beach at Bernieres. There would follow actions in the next few days at Petit Enfer, Douvres, La Deliverande and Rots and Le Hamel. On the 17th June the Unit was reassigned to 4th SS Bde whilst dug in at the area of Sallenelles - Hauger. No. 46 Royal Marine Commando continued operations in the area moving forward to Dozule and Breville sur Mer in August.

At the end of September and after suffering heavy casualties No. 46 Royal Marine Commando and the rest of the Bde was withdrawn to the UK and stationed on the Isle of Wight.

No. 46 Royal Marine Commando returned to North West Europe in January 1945 seeing action in Belgium, and in assault river crossings during the advance into Germany under the command of Lt. Col. Thomas Malcolm Gray MC

At the end of war in Europe in May 1945 they were resting in Neustadt, a small town on Kiel Bay, about 12 miles North of Lubeck. They remained in Germany until 8th June 1945.  This period was spent in occupational duties firstly on the Isle of Fehmarn, south east of Kiel,  and latterly at Bad Schwarteau on the outskirts of Lubeck*.

1 Commando Brigade returned to England  to reorganise for further service in the Far East. This became unnecessary after the surrender of Japan. 46RM Commando moved to Tunbridge Wells and at the beginning of August a new CO, Lieutenant Colonel E.C.E. Palmer, DSO, RM, took command*.

Towards the end of October it was decided to disband the Army Commandos, and with them the First Commando Brigade. 46RM Commando only survived long enough to have its title changed to 46 Commando, Royal Marines, and was finally disbanded on 31st January 1946. By this time a large majority of the original members of the unit had returned to civilian life, but some of the younger members and continuous service ranks, joined their sister unit 45 Commando Royal Marines*.

46RM Commando Nominal Roll

Below is a nominal roll of those who served in 46RM Commando. It is listed by order of surname. The names are primarily compiled from the booklet issued to Veterans in 1946 entitled "The Story of 46 Commando, Royal Marines, by Captain P.K.W. Johnson, RM". The author specifies the Nominal Roll is of those who served between 6th June 1944 and 8th May 1945. However additional names will be added in the future whenever an individual's Commando Service has been established. 

In the absence of any detail on our website, If you wish a name added to this Nominal Roll, you must first provide to us evidence that establishes Commando service. Not all Royal Marines were Commando trained in WW2. Methods of establishing such service can be varied from service records, official letter or other document where it is mentioned, a photo showing commando insignia, books, etc.  Anecdotal evidence is not sufficient.
