The area is dedicated to the memory of all Commandos who gave their lives in the service of their country during the 1939-1945 War. Comrades who have died since the cessation of hostilities are also remembered here.

  1. Hi Lynne – I have some questions about your father and actually just had some photos in our collection printed and digitized that were labelled “Negatives of George Bean and Syd Grafton in England 1943” – one of which is the photo you have of Syd on this page so you probably already have all of them.

    Wondering if we could connect via email: museum@qormuseum.org ?

    Cheers,
