    Have you taken your vitamins today? As you know vitamins have several important functions for our bodies. Some say they are almost as important as a daily dose of TFB’s Photo Of The Day, and we agree of course. Today we have some cracking pictures from the Royal Marines (United Kingdom) during an exercise in Lithuania in 2021.

    Team four of 45 Commando’s X-Ray Company carried out a landing on the southern edge of Klaipėda with raiding craft from 47 Commando, before moving inland on targets in training areas around Kairiai, in northern Lithuania.

    The commandos were hit by a simulated mortar attack as part of the training and they were tasked to react quickly to evacuate a casualty, giving them life-saving treatment before moving them to aid posts.

    Note the Heckler & Koch G36 below.

    To add another level to the training, the marines got their hands on some of the Lithuanian kit, including using training versions of the Heckler & Koch G36 Assault Rifles, which fire plastic balls as rounds.
