One Sixth Military

Army/Royal Marine Boat


To the best of my knowledge these boats were used by both the British Army and the Royal Marines from World War II until the 1960's and a modern version is still in service.  I believe the boats were used by the Engineers for bridge repairs and the like and by the Royal Marines as both assault and supply boats. Accounts exist of them being used in action by the Royal Marines at Walcheren in 1944.


The model boat has been sailed (often) at Poole park.  It always attracts plenty of interest.
