The Regiment is unique in Defence in that no other unit has such an eclectic mix of cap badges working together towards providing Equipment, Medical and Logistical support.

In addition, the Regiment also provides the Protected Mobility capability, in the guise of the Viking All Terrain Vehicle, for the Lead Commando Group.

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 is Britain’s sole amphibious logistic unit.

It demonstrated its operational role during the Falkland’s War, in Northern Iraq on Op Haven, in Southern Iraq on Op Telic and most recently in Afghanistan on Op Herrick.

CLR Saif Sareea 3

Saif Sareea is one of the largest international military exercises in the world. More than 4,000 British sailors, soldiers and air crews will be tested in the punishing sands of the desert of Oman alongside colleagues from the host nation. It is intended to reinforce the long-standing and close military relationship between Britain and Oman, strengthening our ability to provide security and safeguard UK prosperity in a vital part of the world.

International partnerships

As the fifth largest economy in the world, the UK has responsibilities towards its allies and partners. But Britain also has global ambitions – namely to protect the seaways underpinning the country’s prosperity. The Royal Navy plays a crucial role in fostering these enduring and lasting alliances with other nations.

Ready to fight

When diplomacy fails, the UK has to be ready to protect its interests and its allies. What’s more, as a member of NATO and the UN, the UK also acts to support the enforcement of UN resolutions and come to the aid of our allies. This is where the Royal Marines come in: we train to go where we’re needed – by sea, land or air – and deploy our forces with the aim of restoring peace.
