RM Condor

RM Condor, located in Arbroath, Scotland, serves as the base for several important military units. These include 45 Commando Royal Marines, which is part of the elite 3 Commando Brigade. Additionally, 7 (Sphinx) Battery of 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery, 2 Signals Squadron from 32 Signals Regiment, and 30 Commando Information Exploitation Group Royal Military Police Detachment are also housed at RM Condor. Collectively, these units are known as 45 Commando Group, and their presence at the base contributes to the overall strength and capabilities of the Royal Marines.

Role of the base

Its primary role is to serve as the operational hub for 45 Commando, a battalion within the Royal Marines. As part of the UK's elite forces, the base plays a crucial role in training and deploying Royal Marines teams for both domestic and overseas operations. RM Condor provides comprehensive training facilities and support services to ensure the readiness and effectiveness of 45 Commando, enabling them to fulfil their responsibilities in defending the nation's interests and conducting various military missions.

Woodlands Garden

Woodlands Garden is a serene and meaningful space located at RM Condor, created for remembrance and reflection within the community of 45 Commando.

Originally an unused vegetable patch, the garden now features an eight-tonne granite memorial stone engraved with the names of fallen commandos. Designed by Toby Buckland, the garden incorporates rocks from the lands where 45 Commando personnel have lost their lives, providing a place for quiet contemplation. The transformation of the garden was funded by donations from the local community and the men themselves. The Royal Marines Association supports The Woodlands Garden Trust, and contributions can be made online or by mail.
