A 4-man #RoyalMarine team is in the process of training to walk from Commando Training Centre Lympstone (Devon) to the Spean Bridge Commando memorial (Scotland) (pictured) in full kit with a 44lb bergen - 624 miles. Also will be doing the 9 mile speed march at CTC the day before setting off and finishing with the 6 mile speed march up Spean Bridge. Hoping to raise 10,000 pounds for the Royal Marines Charity and NHS charities. Both are under strain, given the current pandemic. Check out @SpeanBridge624 to donate to two great causes. #RNRMC #CharityWalk #Commando #CTC #CommandoTrainingCentre #SpeanBridge #Hoofing

Huge blow to Leonardo Helicopters in Yeovil as 🇰🇷 South Korea opts to buy US-made MH-60R Seahawks instead of planned £423M deal to add a further 12 Wildcats to their existing fleet. Decision made mainly due to political pressure from the US. #Wildcat #Helicopter #WildcatHelicopter #LeonardoHelicopers #Westland #Yeovil #BritishIndustry #Exports #DefenceExports
