29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery
The Commando Gunners - Green Beret To become a Commando Gunner our soldiers must pass the arduous All Arms Commando Course held at Royal Marines The Training Centre, Lympstone. This earns them the right to proudly wear the coveted Green Beret.
29 (two-nine)Commando Regiment Royal Artillery are spearhead troops trained as amphibious, mountain and arctic warfare specialists. They can equally operate at the other extreme in the desert or jungle. The Commando Gunners are equipped with twelve 105mm Light Guns and Fire Support Teams (FSTs) trained to coordinate their firepower.
The FSTs also coordinate other indirect fire support assets such as mortars, fast jets, attack helicopters and the guns from Royal Naval ships. The batteries from 29 Commando Royal Artillery operate around the world on ship with the Royal Marines. We have served in both Afghanistan and Iraq on recent operations and 29 Commando provide offensive fire support to 3 Commando Brigade Royal Marines.
