The Baton on Royal Marine Historic anniversary..
We are all proud to have a Baton carried on the 75th Anniversary of one of the most iconic raids of WW2 ‘Operation Frankton’ undertaken by a small unit of Royal Marines known as the Royal Marines Boom Patrol Detachment (RMBPD), part of Combined Operations, the daring raid was on shipping in the German occupied French port of Bordeaux in the Bay of Biscay during WW2.
To help commemorate this milestone anniversary, The Royal Marines Charity will be supporting members of the Naval Service Recovery Centre Hasler (formerly known as Hasler Company) to retrace the epic 85 mile paddle down the Gironde river to Bordeaux and 100-mile escape route across land; all carried out over the actual anniversary dates.
The team effort can be followed on… https://theroyalmarinescharity.org.uk/…/frankton-75-cockle…/
