The Commando Re-enactment Association organizes an annual Commemorative Commando March at Achnacarry, Scotland, on the 6th of April 2013. The aim of this Commando March is to commemorate the World War 2 Commandos (and US Rangers), who were trained at Achnacarry. It's a re-enactment of fully trained Commandos (and US Rangers) after the succesful completion of their course as, wearing their newly-won Green Berets, they marched back to Spean Bridge and onwards to join their respective Commandos and active service overseas.

This 7 mile march will take place on the 6th of April 2013, starting at Achnacarry Castle and finishing at Spean Bridge Railway Station. The route passes the Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge where a wreath laying ceremony will be held. The day will end with a traditional dinner in the Spean Bridge Hotel.

On the 6th of April 2013, there will be a Speed March from Spean Bridge Railway Station up to Achnacarry (individually timed event with two entry categories).

Achnacarry was the location in the Highlands of Scotland where World War 2 Commandos undertook their gruelling training under the Combined Operations Command and the immediate scrutiny of the legendary Col. Charles E. Vaughan.
