Rememberance Garden at 45 Commando Arbroath

Discussion in 'The Corps' started by finknottle, Nov 6, 2010.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 45 Commando is seeking to raise 150,000 to provide a Woodland Garden at the base which can be used as an area of peace and contemplation by Royal Marines and their families who seek a quiet area to think about those comrades or family members who have died or been seriously injured on active service.

  2. Hopefully a fair bit of cash will be raised...too many from Condor never made it back.
  3. I am confident that they will reach the required amount.
  4. Should be back up there before too long so may pop up to Condor..Good chance to have a beer, throw some money in the tin and see some of the other "Old buggers" up there.
  5. Hi Timex, what years did you spend there?
  6. Hello mate, 79-85. X ray (4 months) and Sp Coy, with a little spell in the Ski slope. :D
  7. Hi Timex, just missed you - arrived Oct 87-94 (Lazy Y) with also a little spell in the ski slope in 92 post paraglider wipe out in Norway.
  8. timex, I'll meet you at Dundee station and we'll go up togeather :lol:
  9. The garden will be officially opened on the 11th November 2011. It will be a private ceremony attended by the NOK and loved ones of the Royal Marines of 45Cdo who have died on active service since the unit came to Arbroath at the end of 1969. The opening will be followed by the medals parade for those who have recently returned from Afghanistan with 3 Commando Brigade.
