Students at Witchford Village College got the chance to meet – and find out more – about the UK’s elite fighting force….the Royal Marines.
“We were lucky to play host to commandos from the Royal Marines,” said a college spokesman.
The marines visited the college to give Year 10 students an insight into a career in the armed forces.
The spokesman said the students initially took part in a presentation giving background information about Navy life and the role of the armed forces.
Following on from this, students were split into groups and engaged in some team building exercises.
