Quotes

"One of the notable national events for the Corps birthday was taking over Royal Palace guard duties and this has given us great experience for taking to the ceremonial celebrations this Saturday on Gibraltar.’’ The Marines of M-Company will also be taking part in a typically physical challenge – the gruelling Rock Run – a running race up and down the Rock of Gibraltar which is undertaken by sailors and Marines of visiting ships."
"The council continues to rely on the findings of the adjudicator at the earlier tribunal and will only surrender ownership of the land if an arrangement can be found that is fair to all parties."
Royal Naval Leading Writer Fiona Easton, who works in the Royal Marines finance office at Bickleigh camp, said: "It will be much easier to work alongside the Royal Marines in the field now that I have a better understanding of what they do. We were shown how to move across Dartmoor while carrying weapons and how to set trip wires. That was my favourite part."
Captain David Eagles, 52, said: "Having had the reassurance, the education and the training which is obviously a key point for our people, I am content that the mission is coherent and I am confident we can deliver the mission and keep our people safe."
