Royal Marines At War
Four films from the IWM archives. Commando is a documentary covering Commando training in detail. Rough Weather Landing is a secret film recording seemingly impossible landings. Jungle Mariners shows the dangers faced by long range Royal Marines patrols in the jungle, while By Sea And Land follows the Royal Marines on the extreme left flank of the British Lines on D-Day plus 19. Text from producer: The Imperial War Museum's official collection features rare and fascinating original films preserved in the museum's vaults. Many have never been released on video before and are shown here, complete and uncut, for the very first time. These films are of great historical importance and are essential viewing for anyone interested in british military history. During WW2, British Commandos from the Royal Marines were seen as an elite special force unit. Supremely fit, experienced with a wide range of weaponry, and highly trained and motivated, they took on some of the most dangerous missions of the entire war. This collection contains four wartime films focusing on the Royal Marines at war. COMMANDO Made for the Admiralty in 1945, this drama-documentary covers Commando training in Wrexham, Anchnacarry and St. Ives. Fascinating archive footage shows wartime Commando units on amphibious assault exercises, perfecting cliff-top assaults and practising both armed and unarmed combat techniques. ROUGH WEATHER LANDING - A secret film recording of ˜an experiment by No4 Commando' demonstrating their ability to launch a surprise attack on a seemingly impregnable coastline. JUNGLE MARINERS A Crown Film Unit production showing the dangers faced by long range Royal Marines patrols in the jungles of the Far East. BY SEA AND LAND - Another Crown Film Unit production following the Royal Marines on the extreme left flank of the British Lines on D-Day plus 19 as they consolidate their tenuous foothold on Occupied Europe.
