Royal Marines from 43 Commando Fleet Protection Group, based at Faslane, are used to the vagaries of the Scottish climate, as they hone their operational capability during training on the Gareloch, ready for deployment around the globe.

But when the weather’s this good…

In these images, Royal Marines on board super-manoeuvrable, high-speed Offshore Raiding Craft, or ORCs as they are better known, take advantage of the calm waters to exercise a variety of boarding and protection serials.

Light Dragoons deploy to Bosnia ahead of autumn elections

Nearly 100 UK soldiers have travelled to Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) to help maintain stability ahead of the October elections.

Ninety-five members of the Light Dragoons cavalry regiment deployed recently, along with reservists from the Queen’s Own Yeomanry, following the Defence Secretary’s announcement to Parliament last month that the UK would provide extra support to the EU’s peacekeeping mission in Sarajevo.

Two troops of reconnaissance soldiers, who will remain for up to six months, will help the mission to more effectively anticipate, monitor and prevent civil unrest across the country.

Their deployment is a strong sign of the UK’s continued support for BiH’s security and commitment to Operation Althea, which is designed to ensure a safe and secure environment there. The British Army has been contributing personnel to the mission since it began in 2004.

Parliamentary Under Secretary of State and Minister for Reserves Julian Brazier said: “The October elections will be an important event for the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The UK contribution to the EU mission will help ensure they take place in a secure and stable environment.”
