Well said. Incidentally, the Commando Speed March might interest some who are keen on comparative marching ability: "During 1996, it was decided to reconstruct the original World War II Commando speed march to raise funds for the Commando Benevolent Fund and the Airborne Forces Charities as well as other charitable bodies. This has now become an established annual military event attracting over 300 entrants a year. The march is held over the original course between Spean Bridge Railway Station and Achnacarry House in the Scottish Highlands."

It is an iconic event with strong historical links to the origins of several elite units and professional pride is always at stake. It is worth noting that in recent years the Individual Winner for three consecutive events was L/Cpl Beadle of 23 Pioneer Regiment, Royal Logistics Corps.
