HMS WESTMINSTER’S ROYAL MARINES LEARN THE ROPES
HMS Westminster’s embarked Royal Marines have started their own training on board. With a week gone into the deployment, Royal Marines from 43 Commando started their training with some familiarisation fast roping training. This type of insertion method is favoured by the Royal Marines due to its fast and efficient effectiveness.
