I can't find anymore epsidoes but here is part one of an old series filiming training in the mid ninties.

Part One of a series about the Royal Marine Commandos. I don't know if any more episodes are hiding in my mountain of mouldy old tapes, will upload if I find any. Narrated by Martin Shaw. Produced by West Country. According to the internet, "The series followed the Recruit Training of 638 Troop and also AACC 4/92.".

Enjoy!

This book accompanied the TV series:

I understand that the King's Badgeman of 638 Troop is now the CO of RMR Scotland.

As an aside, back in the era of this TV series and book I understand that St Swithun's Church, Woodbury permitted CTCRM access to the church tower as an OP for exercises possibly because the then OC of Commando Training Wing was an enthusiastic church bell ringer.

That's the book I trained with .!! The overall picture and getting across the rigors of training in this film is s much better than Commodo School.!!. And what the CSM from the Signals is saying is true across the board. And even right of the bat the Cpl with the 80,s porn tash stating that guys are simply not mentally ready is still the case in the main.
