Uniformidad ROYAL MARINES - Airsoft

Royal Marines from 40 Commando were awarded their campaign medals today following a six-month tour of Afghanistan’s Helmand Province on Operation Herrick 7.

The Commandos will take part in a ceremonial parade in front of hundreds of friends and family, followed by a barbeque for all the families and a number of displays that aim to show the conditions the Marines lived in and the kinds of tasks they could expect while deployed.

The Royal Marines from 40 Commando, based in Norton Manor Camp, Taunton, Somerset, worked alongside the Royal Marines of the Armoured Support Group and their colleagues from the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm as part of 52 Infantry Brigade.

Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Birrell, Commanding Officer of 40 Commando, said: “This day for families is hugely important to us because without their support we simply could not do the job we do. It is their letters and parcels that keep us going when times are hard and we have missed them over these past months. Today we have a chance to thank them, with the entire 40 Commando community invited to join us at Norton Manor Camp.”

40 Commando took on the responsibility for Battle Group North in Afghanistan’s Helmand Province from September 2007 until April 2008, where they operated from forward operating bases in the Gereshk and Sangin valleys. They conducted numerous operations and were instrumental in the taking of Musa Q’ala.

Lieutenant Colonel Birrell RM said: “The Unit worked extremely hard in challenging conditions over a long period, so I am pleased that families have an opportunity to see the men presented with medals they richly deserve.”
