Weston Super Mare Armed Forces Festival

Royal Marines from Taunton based 40 Commando RM and The Unarmed Combat Display Team, Commando Training Centre, Royal Marines Lympstone will be out in force on Weston Super Mare seafront this coming weekend as they accompany and support the Go Commando charity for Weston’s Armed Forces Weekend and Air Festival.

40 Commando RM have a strong affinity with the North Somerset region, having been granted Freedom of Weston Super Mare in 2014, the 350th Birthday Anniversary Year of the Royal Marines Corps. The fun starts from 10am on both days.

Debbie Howarth from Go Commando commented” We are looking forward to an extremely good weekend as we create a Royal Marines Village as part of the Armed Forces Day celebrations .  It’s a huge honour to again have the lads from 40 Commando RM with us on such a great occasion displaying their kit, equipment and vehicles and even more exciting this year, we also have the Royal Marines Unarmed Combat Display Team, a Laser Quest area and more vehicles and kit supplied by Commando Training Centre RM. Should be an awesome weekend!”
