No 5 Commando was a battalion-sized British Army commando unit formed in July 1940. The Commando took part in a number of small-scale raids in France in 1941 and contributed some personnel to Operation Chariot before taking part in the landings on Madagascar in 1942. In late 1943 it was sent to India with the rest of the 3rd Special Service Brigade and subsequently took part in operations in Burma throughout 1944 and 1945.

 

Following the end of the war the unit undertook occupation duties in Hong Kong where they were amalgamated with No
1 Commando before being disbanded on 23 March 1946.

 

This patch dates from 1940.
