2 Commando Association

The inaugural meeting of 2 Commando Association was held on the 30th of March 1983 at the instigation of Roman Stuczynski, who had long seen the value of such an organisation. Roman's vision, that he worked tirelessly to bring about, was to give past and present members of 2 Commando Company a traditional base from which to foster and perpetuate ties of comradeship amongst past and serving members of Australian Commando and Special Force units

1st Commando Regiment Association – Victoria Incorporated

An historic special general meeting of 2 Commando Association Inc. was held at the Naval and Military Club on Saturday 10 December 2005.

President Bruce O’Connor welcomed all those in attendance and gave a brief outline of the circumstances that led to the meeting being called.
Bruce reiterated the key future drivers for the Association: the stated position of 1st Commando Regiment, the accelerated decline of the WWII Commando Associations, and the need to cement welfare support and funding for all members of the “Commando” family.

Affiliations

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.
