    Default Re: another commando grouping

    Hi Dave, nice group and certainly worthy of further research. Not 100% sure he was a Commando. Bear in mind not every Royal Marine was a Commando. Looking at his record a couple of the entries are:

    HBL = Home Based Ledger.

    MNBDO= Marine Naval Base Defence Organisation.

    I would be interested to learn more about him.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I am not really up on RM stuff. I have only ever looked in Army Command stuff. You need to find out which RM units served overseas to qualify for the Africa & Italy Stars.

    It is a pity that his actual unit is not clearly given. The MNBDO got re-designated:

    Sea Your History - Commandos and Raiders

    Look up which one/s served in the Med.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Very nice group, my father owns an extremely beautiful Royal Marine visor. A few years back we had a fire and mostly all the collection was destroyed.
