British/Commonwealth naval operations in the Korean War

During the Korean War, the US Navy operated off the Korean East coast, leaving the West coast largely to British and Commonwealth forces.They were many islands off the West coasts, and many naval bombardments and air strikes carried out in conjunction with anti Communist regulars, not unlike 2011 NATO operations in Linya being coordinated with the anti Gadaffi forces.

Did any of the Western forces in Korea have any sort of special forces that could could have worked with local anti communist forces - or were all such troops disbanded post 1945 as nobody could see a role for them in the Cold War?

SBS operated on the coast and a Sqn of SAS was raised from 21 for Korea but it never deployed in that country, diverted to Malaya instead (ended up as B Sqn, 22).
