The Royal Marines are famous the world over as the Royal Navy’s soldiers at sea. Tough and resilient, a Commando is part of a special brotherhood serving globally 24 hours a day. From the Arctic to Afghanistan, Royals are making their mark.
About the Royal Marines
40 Commando is a battalion sized Unit providing part of 3 Commando Brigade’s amphibious warfare capability.
Recently returned from live fire training in California, 42 Commando Royal Marines are one of three elite battalion-sized units which make up the global punch of 3 Commando Brigade.
For a long time Britain’s experts in cold weather warfare, the men of 45 Commando have spent most of the past decade surrounded by sand. However last autumn saw the Royal Marines return to their natural habitat, the Cougar 2012 amphibious deployment to the Mediterranean, and now in the midst of cold weather training in Norway and the highlands of Scotland.
539 Assault Squadron
539 Assault Squadron Royal Marines is a vital link in the Corps' chain, allowing 3 Commando Brigade to transfer onto land from the sea or river. It can operate amphibious Viking vehicles to deliver force into territories, something which the unit has done several times since it was created in the aftermath of the Falklands War.
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.
