B' e Sìm Friseal, 17mh MacShimidh (1911-1995), an 25mh Ceann Cinnidh air na Frisealaich. Choisinn e cliù mar Chommando Breatannach anns an Dàrna Cogadh. Chaidh a dhroch leòn anns an ionnsaigh air Normandaidh ann an 1944, ach dh'fhàs e na b' fheàrr. Anns na bliadhnaichean an dèidh a' chogaidh, chuir e seachad mòran ùine ann am poileataigs, agus air oighreachdan an teaghlaich mun Mhanachainn.

Anns a' chòmhradh seo ri Sam Marshall bho Moray Firth Radio, tha MacShimidh a' beachachadh air cho cudromach 's a bha e saighdearan freagarrach a thaghadh airson nam Feachdan Commando.

'Achnacarry was the depot and there they were put through the hoop as private soldiers and some just couldn't take the hard conditions; lying out at night and having to live in wet clothes and do these enormous marches; and prove themselves capable of firing a rifle in the right direction. Lochailort was for officers and non-commissioned officers. Between the two we blended a core elite but I should say there was something like forty per cent returned to their own regiments. It wasn't easy to decide; sometimes a person who was a psychopath appeared to be immensely brave and was determined to win the Victoria Cross, and when you landed on a hostile beach you found he was shaking with fear and couldn't go backwards or forwards. One did find those things unexpectedly on occasions, but by and large it was an elimination of the people who just couldn't do the physical side and that was important.'
