Don?t know if it?s been put out yet or this is the right place, but here goes, this is from a chap I/We know on FB, Mike Beckett and the Royal Marine Historical Society -

'The Commando Compendium'.

A true and unique record of the men who served so gallantly and who?s legacy today survives not just in the Royal Marines but in all the units of 3 Commando Brigade & other SF's.

Order here - https://www.rmhistoricalsociety.org/book-order-form

25 + 5 P&P

If ordering online, use the code SP 54, where it asks for the SP Number, otherwise ring them up to purchase it, on -

01730 261199 to make payment, opening hours are 9 ? 5pm Monday to Saturday.

The Royal Marines Historical Society have paid for publication and deal with distribution. They will receive all proceeds, which to me is a great cause.? (from Mike)

I?m trying to get this publication as much exposure as possible, as I think its an important work on the history of the Commando movement and maybe needs more advertising, so have posted on several social media platforms to help to promote it and the good cause the money it will go to.

Good reading everybody.

That?s great stuff chap, who?d have thought that in our town. Amazing stuff, he needs to contact Damien Lewis, the author, plus James Holland and Al Murray off We Have Ways podcast, would be very interested I reckon. Believe I?ve heard of a story like that on various presentations etc., but never really took it in. Would be good to hear his story in full, do they have any images as well?

Where in the PORT chap?
