I had stacks of urban combat, in the Albany, Lennox, Wiltshire Grey, and the Kepples head. Not least by that hotdog stand outside the main dockyard gate.

The text says ' Following on from their experiences of compound clearance work in Afghanistan, the 45 men are now training to operate in more complex and industrial urban environments.'

having read the article it informs us of X Coy of 45 commando 'doing their stuff'

i wonder how they worked out that there were only 45 men in X Coy?

or are there only 45 men in 45 Commando? :biggrin:

A mucker of mine told me there was a plank of wood as rear party when 42 went away. No-one got the joke. I might be lying of course.

'bone meter off'

i dont get it :confused2:

'bone meter on'

it reminded me on one Norway when after a day on the ranges the Noggies sent one coach to collect 45 Commando - oh how we laughed!

do you think the MOD posters have made a similar mistake?

I know this is probably the wrong thread for this (but at least you are discussing booties). I am trying to trace my grandfather who was a bootie way back (1900 or earlier), is there a source for searching Royal Marine records for this time period. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
