ROYAL MARINES Team up with Norwegian Troops in the Artic Circle

Raiding specialists 47 Commando have been showing Norwegian troops how commandos storm shorelines on amphibious raids in the fjords of the Arctic Circle

The British Royal Marines have been showing their Norwegian counterparts how they launch assaults on a beach head and more so on fjords in the Arctic Circle.

47 Commando have been showing Norwegians troops from Brigade Nord how to work with their fast raiding boats, which can reach up to speeds of 50mph.

The commando teams and soldiers from Brigade Nord had to deal with the 25mph gusts with reduced visibility because of the white-out conditions. Temperatures dipped as low as -20C.

The purpose of these training missions is to ensure that Norwegian and Royal Marines can operate effectively as a cohesive unit during amphibious assaults.
