The Parachute Regiment

The gates of the Commonwealth Chapel bear the Pegasus inisgnia of the Regiment and were presented to the church in 1979 by General Sir Anthony Farrar-Hockley, Colonel Commandant of the Regiment. Within the chapel are the 'laid-up' standards of County of London Battalion, and the London Branch of the Parachute Regiment Association.

The Annual Remembrance Service of the Regiment is held at St. Lawrence Jewry each November.


The Royal Marines

The crest of the Royal Marines features on the Commonwealth Chapel Screen, which was presented by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in 1974 to mark their affiliation with this church. The 'Tower Chapel' was dedicated to the Royal Marines in 2014 in celebration of their 350th Anniversary and contains the 'laid-up' standards of 40 Commando, and the City of London Royal Marines Association.
