Interesting thing here:http://www.combinedops.com/Elba - Op Brassard.htm
Again, it calls them Beach Commandos.
It also mentions people falsifying birth certificates . The subject was mentioned by someone on here recently.
If you go to the link on my above post (#2), and click one of the links to the National Archive, it refers to them RN Commandos.
