POTD: Royal Marine Commandos in Training

    Photo Of The Day – We take a look at Royal Marines of the 40 Commando and the 45 Commando as they have live firing exercises in the Brecon Beacons, Sennybridge Training Area in Wales.

    With machine guns laying down fire support, Charlie Company of 40 Commando advanced quickly on the enemy during day and night troop attacks across the vast Sennybridge area – the third largest range in the UK spanning an area the size of Bristol.

    The SA80 Bullpup.

    While Charlie moved forward, mortar troops of 40 Commando and 45 Commando rained down a hail of steel and fire throughout the valley from their Viking armoured vehicles, while 29 Commando used their 105mm light guns to pummel nearby targets.
