An early Christmas break

RMA – The Royal Marines Charity’s winter deployment trip was in full swing last week in Scotland and, all in all, an amazing time was had by all!

The annual respite break for wounded and injured Royal Marines and their families is always a much-anticipated event, giving them a chance to have the ‘down-time’ to enjoy one another’s company and make new friendships.

Supported by the RMA team, it was – as always – a busy week that included a Christmas movie night and an early  appearance of Santa, along with visits to a number of local attractions including the Glenfinnan viaduct and monument – where it was -8!; the Highland Wildlife Park; the Achnacarry Estate; and a Loch Ness cruise that was followed by a service of remembrance at the Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge to pay respects to the 24 Royal Marine cadets who were killed in the Gillingham Chatham Bus Tragedy 72 years’ ago on 4th December 1951.
