48RM Commando

This was the last WW2 Commando unit to be raised. The planning for DDay required one additional Commando unit and it was decided to use the soon to be disbanded 7th Battalion, Royal Marines, for this purpose, with any shortfall in numbers to be filled by Marines serving in Mobile Naval Base Defence Organisation 2 (MNBDO2), Royal Marines.

No. 48 Royal Marine Commando, Royal Marnes, was raised at Deal between 2–13 March 1944 under the command of  Lt Col James Louis Moulton, RM. The Commando immediately moved to the Commando Basic Training Centre at Achnacarry to take part in a course, shortened due to time constraints, of Commando training. 

During the D Day operations,  they landed on Nan Red Sector of Juno Beach, alongside the Canadians. Commando casualties during the landings were very high and included most of the Troop Commanders. They continued with the offensive taking the enemy strongpoint at Langrune. After being reinforced a few days later, the next few months would see the Commando participating in the fighting during the allied advance inland, and they would continue in this role until mid September.

It was at this time that they begain training for the landings that were to take place at Walcheren.  Having left Ostend on the 31st October 1944, No.48RM Commando, as part of 4 Special Service Brigade, assaulted the beaches at Westkapelle with No.41RM Commando the following day. Their role was to destroy gun batteries and enemy coastal defences. The Commando would continue in operations in The Netherlands over the next few months.

In March 1945 with the promotion of Lt Col Moulton to Brigadier i/c 4 Special Service Brigade, Lt Col Martin Price took command of No.48 RM Commando.

After the surrender of Germany in May, the Commando was moved to Minden in Germany in a policing and security role that would take them to different locations around North Germany.

Having returned to the UK in November, No. 48 Royal Marine Commando RM, was disbanded the following year at Beeding, near Horsham, on 31 January 1946.

MOULTON, James Louis (Lt.Col)

Rank: 
Major General
Regiment/Corps: 
Royal Marines
Service: 
Royal Navy
Died : 
Monday, November 22, 1993
Lt. Col James Louis Moulton
Lieutenant Colonel James Louis Moulton,  48RM Commando, was awarded the DSO for gallant and distinguished services while operating with the Army during the successful landings in Normandy. [1] . He additionally received a MiD [1A] for good services with the British Army of the Rhine. He later commanded 48RM Commando during the assault on Walcheren in November 1944. 
 
Post war he commanded 3rd Commando Brigade RM in the Mediterranean, and subsequently became Chief of Amphibious Warfare.
 
1950 - New Year's Honours list Lt. Col. Moulton was appointed OBE. [2]
 
1952 - Officer Commanding 3rd Commando Brigade.  He was later appointed Chief of Amphibious Warfare. [3]
 
1956 -  New Year's Honours list Maj. Gen. Moulton OBE, DSO, was appointed CB. [4]
 
1st January 1971 - Appointed Colonel Commandant Royal Marines. [5]
 
His death was announced in Commando Association newsletter 98 issed March 1994 where their General Secretary Henry Brown OBE wrote this obituary: 
 
"As many comrades will already have read the excellent detailed obituary notices which appeared in the national press, there is little to be added to the long list of accomplishments of our esteemed late Patron, General James Louis Moulton, CB., DSO., OBE., RM., or General 'Jim', as he was affectionately known to most of us. Although only privileged to enjoy his patronage in recent years, it was a period in which many of our events were greatly enhanced by his presence, and it is indeed so sad that we are now denied the joy of inviting him again to come amongst us. He was at all times so kind, considerate and helpful, and it is most satisfying to know that he much prized his appointment as a Patron of our Association. Our deepest sympathy has been conveyed to Mrs. Barbara Moulton and her family in their great loss."
