RM 350 will be based on a programme of events to be held in 2014 to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the formation in 1664 of the Admiral’s Regiment. Events will include activities that are conducted on regular basis and will be supplemented by events specifically designed for RM 350.
RM 350 will reflect the present and future as well as past events and achievements. At the same time it will include the whole Corps Family and other organisations the Corps has close ties with. There will also be considerable scope for fundraising for Royal Marines and other charities.
All those who intend to celebrate the Royal Marines’ birthday are urged to start by making robust and well structured financial provision at the earliest opportunity. A realistic aim would be to raise £10k per year per unit/band/branch over the three years leading up to 2014.
Further updates will follow.
