Not sure if you are related or not? He is named in our 46RM Commando nominal roll if you check it out in the main archive here: https://www.commandoveterans.org/46RMCommandoNomRollEtoK

He is a Sergeant there but is also later shown in the in the Navy Lists as can be seen on the link below as a Lieutenant in the RM Holding Commando April 1945 presumably awaiting deployment:

So yes he was a commando. If you have a photo or more detail about him, dates and places of birth and death etc., post them. Any difficulty with the photos just let me know. I cannot promise to respond immediately due to family reasons at the moment but I will when I can.
