The Commandos are an elite fighting force within the British Army who specialise in launching lightning raids - and were part of some of the most evocative actions of the war - such as the raids at St Nazaire and Bruneval, and the disastrous landings at Dieppe.

The Commandos of World War Two used some specialised equipment to undertake their actions - from the Vickers-K Machine Gun, cockle canoes, the Comet tank, the unmistakable Fairbairn–Sykes fighting knife - and of course, the Green Beret.
