William Godfrey de Lisle and Sir Malcolm Campbell created the weapon in Dagenham for the British Special Operations Executive in 1943 to assist those soldiers in battle.

Other weapons, such as the Sten, went up against the De Lisle Commando Carbine, but the design tested and won out due to its effectiveness after 5,000 rounds.
