The 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.
The inscription on the memorial reads:
United we conquer
In memory of the officers and men of the commandos who died in the Second World War 1939 – 1945
This country was their training ground.
