Royal Marines Association
Five years ago, the Royal Marines Club, a branch of RMA, introduced a ‘Winter Deployment’ for our wounded and injured Royal Marines and their families by offering a respite break.
After three previous successful outings to Norway, we were forced
to cancel this much-awaited annual trip in 2020 because of strict Covid regulations impacting overseas travel.
In December 2021, uncertainty around the situation remained a concern and, so as not to miss yet another year, the RM Club and the Charity decided to take those families selected to Fort William in Scotland for six days of relaxation and winter-themed fun.
“ A fantastic time was had by all — friendships were made & renewed.”
