The first RM Commando unit - originally 'A(RM)' (so nearly ARMY) Commando and raised at Deal on St Valentine's Day 1942, showing that the military tradition of ruining your sex life was well established even then. Took part in the legendary (and disastrous) Dieppe raid and spent most of the rest of WW2 fighting their way through Italy.

Now based in Taunton at Norton Manor Camp having been evicted from Plymouth in the 1980s.

Deployed to CORPORATE, TELIC 1 (and, like so many others, have been back since) and currently bothering goats on HERRICK.
