Commandos from the Royal Marines, Army , Royal Navy as well as from some overseas forces gathered at the Commando Memorial Spean Bridge ‘To Remember’
The Commando Memorial, Spean Bridge is one of the most impressive war memorials I have visited. Imposing in statue, its location allows you to absorb the openness and with a biting wintery wind appreciate the wildness of the countryside that was the training ground of the first commandos.
The modern day site consists of the War Memorial and the new area of Remembrance as well as an area where ashes can be scattered at the spiritual Commando home. Within the area of Remembrance are numerous tributes from across the world. Tributes to those who were lost in WWII and also to those lost in more recent times.
The Memorial always seems to have someone visiting and it is a great place for poignant reflection.
