Thanks Alan,

Some of you may have spotted that the Nominal Rolls for Nos 1 through to No 12 Commandos had been added recently in a new format replacing the old versions that had to be downloaded to view. I have now also added a similar revised format for the RN Commando Nominal Roll. They can be accessed by opening the relevant Commando Unit in the WW2 Commando Units section on the Home Page navigation menu.

Credit for much of the actual content on the Nominal Rolls must go to Nick Collins and Graham Cooper. Many of you will already know Nick as he is the Forum moderator, a member of our research group, and has responsibility for the Nominal Rolls. Graham is part of our small group of volunteers on the research group, and he has been a fantastic asset to that group. His excellent research into all those who served in the Commandos, combining information from what we already had, along with information he discovered from official records, has enabled the Commando Veterans Archive to have an unprecedented record of those who served including all who died both during the war, and since the war.

Thank you Pete - thank you all for the fantastic job you do. This is my first port of call if anyone mentions that they're looking for someone who may or may not have been a Commando. I always direct them here.

I'm proud to be a member of this Forum. Thanks again.

If I have praised my comrades too highly I make no apology, for they were beyond all praise.

Nick,
For the sake of complete accuracy would you mind adding 1st SAS before SRS against my father's name.

Many thanks,

It was updated with the additional detail by myself in preparation of creating a bio page on your Father regarding his award. I have seen a reference to and a photo of your Father in Stewart McClean?s book called SAS, The History of the SRS. If you contact me by email below I would like to get a few more details for the page I intend to add.

Hello Pete,

Of course I will be more than happy to provide you with whatever information you need but unfortunately I can't access your email address via this forum. Alan Orton has my email details and I wonder if you could get them from him and send me a message direct.

Regards,

I am the proud grandson of Frederick Stock, i noticed that his name is slightly wrong in the section No.11 Commando Nominal P-Z. He volenteered for the commandos whilst serving with the Seaforth Highlanders. I will try and find his service number. He later volunteered for 204 military mission to China.

Hi Mark,

Thank you very much for that information - I have now amended his entry in the No.11 Cdo nominal roll.

I'm pleased to say I have him on my nominal roll for 204 Military Mission where he served in the Burma Cadre Battalion under Lt Col Derek Gill-Davies, DSO.

... and his number was 4804207.

Thanks that was very valuable information which ties up loose ends.

I did notice that we don't have any photos of your grandfather - I'm sure that as a proud grandson, you'd like to see his photo in our Gallery with his colleagues and pals where he will be remembered with pride... ) :D

Taken from file no. WO361/825 is the following entry 2696403 Jackson, Ernest, Scots Guards attached 8 Commando admitted to hospital 7 March 1941.
Could you add his name to 8 (Guards) Commando Nominal Roll?

Service No. update: the following names have incorrect service no's which was an error on my part in the first place so apologies for that.
Robertson, J. P. 811911. 8 Commando
Sadler, J. 814251. 8 Commando.

Missing from 8 Commando Nominal Roll is 803879 L/Sgt. Ralph Lazenby Scots Guards.

Additional info in regard to 2617519 H. J. Leadbetter Grenadier Guards, attached L Detatchment, transferred to Special Boat Section before returning to his parent regt. He was WIA in Italy and taken prisoner before being repatriated to UK.

Although there appears at present no Nominal Roll for D Battalion i have come across a name within the 361 file:
2695634 Donaldson, D. Scots Guards.

Kind regards,

Alan.

Hi Alan,

Once again thank you for the information.
All amendments have now been incorporated and I hope to have a nominal roll for ME Cdos in the very near future...
