The Royal Navy’s elite commando soldiers, specialists in amphibious warfare
Arguably Britain’s best soldiers they are specialists in amphibious operations (landing from ships) but have a wide range of skills including mountain, arctic and desert warfare. Their fine record and inherent flexibility has seen the Royal Marines called on in almost every conflict fought by Britain. They have never let us down and completed 6 tours in Afghanistan in 12 years, losing 62 men killed. They are now re-focussing on core their amphibious skills.
