40RM Commando

Formed 14th February 1942 as The RM Commando, it was briefly known as "A" RM Commando before being designated No. 40 Royal Marine Commando, Royal Marines. It was the only Royal Marine Commando formed entirely from volunteers as with the Army Commandos. Early training was on the Isle of Wight with the RM Commandos billeted in homes at Shanklin, Sandown and Ventnor.

Their notable actions during WW2 are Dieppe [View the Dieppe ROH], St Benere, Termoli, Anzio, Dalmatian Islands, and Lake Comacchio.

No. 40 Royal Marine Commando, Royal Marines, was disbanded early in October 1946.

A few months later a new 40 Commando, Royal Marines,  was formed. They saw Service in Palestine, Malaya, Cyprus, Suez, Brunei and Borneo and Ireland, the Falklands, and more recently Afghanistan (see Commandos Post WW2 album)

40RM Commando Nominal Roll

Below is a nominal roll of those who served in 40RM Commando. It is listed by order of surname. 
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.

40RM Commando at Dieppe

The role of 40RM Commando during the Combined Operations raid at Dieppe raid was to assault and secure the harbour area.

Follow this link for the ROH of all the Commando Fallen at Dieppe

40RM Commando casualties HMS Fidelity

HMS Fidelity

HMS Fidelity was sunk by torpedoes during a U Boat attack (U435) on the 30th December 1942 off the Azores. The U-boat reported a large number of survivors on rafts and in the water. All drowned in the rough seas as the weather deteriorated. The only survivors were a few who had launched a motor boat from the ship before the attack.  Among the casualties were 53 members of 'T' Company 40 RM Commando who were on board. The letter 'T' was never used again by 40RM Commando for a Company.

All Casualties are listed by the CWGC as dying on the 1st January 1943.

The Commandos killed on HMS Fidelity:  40RM Commando 'T' Company.

The WW2 ROH for this Commando unit: 40RM Commando Roll of Honour.

CWGC: RM Casualties on HMS Fidelity
Account by Pat O’Leary (born Albert Guérisse) 
 

40RM Commando casualties HMS Queen Emma

 
On 17th July 1943 HMS Queen Emma was in Augusta Harbour Sicily with 40 Royal Marine Commando on board when there was a bombing raid on the harbour. This caused numerous casualties and damage on board when concussion and shrapnel from a bomb caused a box of grenades to go off on the mess deck.

Notes
The CWGC record 11 names as being from  40RM Commando. This list includes the name of Captain Ford however it is highly likely that Captain Ford was actually attached to 41RM Commando [see record]. Captain Ford is also unusually not mentioned alongside the names of the two officers in the 40RM Cdo. War Diary entry above for 17th July.
 
That entry additionally records 13 OR's as killed. There are three Marines listed by unit on the CWGC database simply as Queen Emma. This would be correct if they were part of the crew of the ship. However as can be seen there is a difference to the number of OR's killed as per the War Diary entry, and those OR's recorded as 40RM Cdo by the CWGC. We have included those names here and hope the details can be confirmed or otherwise in the future.

Whilst the CWGC record his unit as 40RM Commando from whom there many casualties during the air attack ,  Raymond Mitchell, author of the book "They Did What Was Asked Of Them"  states that Captain Ford with others from 41RM Commando, were also on board. He records Captain Ford, commanding 'A' Troop of 41RM Commando, was killed and 9 OR's were injured. This account is confirmed by the June 1943  Navy Lists where Captain F.O. Ford is listed as an Officer of 41RM Commando [view the list].

Extract from a report in the Essex Newsman - Saturday 02 October 1943

"On Tuesday Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Nunn, 139 Notley Road, Braintree, received official information that their only surviving son, Sidney Donald Nunn, of the Royal Marine Commandos, had died of wounds received in action off Sicily on July 17, 1943.
 
Marine Nunn, who was 22, was formerly employed at Messrs. Swinbourne's Factory, Braintree, and left with some of his comrades to join the Royal Marines. He had served in the Marine Commandos for over a year, and came through the Dieppe landing without injury. While serving in the Mediterranean he wrote asking his parents send him The Essex Chronicle as he wanted read the home news, and the Paper had been posted to him since. Much sympathy will be felt with Mr. and Mrs. Nunn, who had the misfortune to lose their other son, aged seven years, in a motor accident ten years ago. They have one daughter."
