One specialises with boats (watercraft), the other is a fighting unit, basically.

47 Commando is made up of four separate units, 1 Assault Group are masters of small boat operations. They use fast, highly manoeuvrable watercraft to conduct hit-and-run operations on enemy ships and to deliver troops and equipment ashore.

The group also provides training in a number of areas, from engineering to assault navigation. One of the group’s sub-units, 11 Amphibious Trials and Training Squadron, is responsible for conducting trials and testing of future crafts. https://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/our-or...ms/royal-marines/commando-brigade/47-commando

42 Commando deliver a combination of capabilities including: high threat capacity-building and training of overseas partnered forces; Ships Force Protection Teams; training to indigenous forces; maritime interdiction and boarding operations; UK resilience and support to the Queen Elizabeth Class Carriers.

Based in Bickleigh, just outside of Plymouth, 42 Commando is made up of specialist teams ready to deploy around the world to deliver Maritime Security, Support and Training to foreign nations and specialist amphibious support across Defence.
