In 1986 the WW2 Commando Association (Victoria) resolved to enter into a formal affiliation with 2 Commando Association. Each was to continue with the conduct of its own affairs without influencing the other. By formally continuing the excellent relations with the Association, the World War 2 commandos would also strengthen their links with the Company.
At the 1987 Annual Dinner a memorandum of affiliation, prepared by Peter Tierney, was signed between the Commando Association (Victoria) and 2 Commando Association.
2 Commando Association also has formal affiliations, or strong informal links, with the AATTV, BAFA, 1 Commando Association, M and Z Commando Associations, Royal Marines Association, 2/4 Commando Association, SAS Association, Z Special Force Association and the Rhodesian Veterans Association, and through the Company, 45 Royal Marine Commando.
