45 COMMANDO Royal Marines welcomed the friends and families of serving personnel to a Family Fun Day at RM Condor, Arbroath.

It was the first time since the beginning of the pandemic that an occasion like this was allowed to go ahead. 45 Commando Assault Engineers were responsible for arranging the event on Condor’s airfield. As well as lots of fun activities for adults and children alike, guests also enjoyed a BBQ, crazy golf and a bonfire and fireworks display.
 
Captain Ian Barnes, who’s duty it was to organise the evening’s festivities said:  “It was fantastic to once again welcome back the friends and families of 45 Commando to celebrate bonfire night. It would seem that a lot of fun was had on the evening, which makes all the planning and organising well worth it.

It is only through the support of our friends and families that the unit can continue to operate effectively. It is vitally important that we acknowledge that, especially after the restrictions of the pandemic.
