    A large crowd of Sierra Leoneans came out to meet a small group of Royal Marines who stepped ashore to carry out survey work.

    The men, from 539 Assault Squadron Royal Marines (ASRM) and 42 Commando, went ashore at Lungi Beach, near the country’s main international airport.

    There they met with local people who told them more about the surrounding area as well as carrying out an underwater survey in order to confirm beach gradients and their usability by landing craft.

    Embarked in Royal Fleet Auxiliary aviation support ship RFA Argus, the Royal Marines are supporting the Government of Sierra Leone and the Department for International Development (DfID) in the international battle against Ebola outbreak in the region.
