        Commando Logistic Regiment

        Commando Logistic Regiment Royal Marines (CLR) is situated at Chivenor in North Devon. It is home to about 620 personnel from all three services, including Mechanical Engineers, Medics and Logisticians. No other unit has such an eclectic mix of cap badges working together.

        Commando Logistics Regiment

        The Regiment’s purpose is to provide every aspect of combat service support for 3 Commando Brigade, anywhere in the world. In particular the Regiment’s aims are to provide support for brigade amphibious operations when sea based, during offload across a beach or port and over a large battle space on land.

        CLR has proven the importance of its existence and roles in recent operations in Afghanistan. The Regiment deployed in its entirety on Operation Herrick 9 and the men and women of CLR RM were granted seven honours and awards in recognition of their outstanding achievements.
