Commando war memorial © C Moreton, 2008The Commando memorial stands at Spean Bridge in the Highlands. The monument shows three Commandos surveying the area which was their training ground during World War II. The memorial commemorates fallen Commandos from that conflict.

In 2002 War Memorials Trust contributed £500.00 towards the costs of repairs and landscaping work around the Commando Memorial.

The memorial was unveiled by Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother on Saturday 27 September 1952.
