During a day at the base in Torpoint, Brigadier Jenkins was briefed on the role Raleigh plays in preparing recruits and more experience sailors for service at sea.

He was shown the extensive facilities available for training on the River Lynher and within the establishment itself, with a tour taking in the Royal Navy Submarine School, an accommodation block used by recruits, the Royal Marines Band Complex and the multi-million pound replenishment-at-sea training rig.

Brigadier Jenkins assumed Command of 3 Commando Brigade in April 2017.  He was commissioned into the Royal Marines in 1990 and has had a wide variety of regimental and staff appointments.
