HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh and Captain General of the Royal Marines
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip is pictured at RMB Chivenor as the Captain General of the Royal Marines in November 2011.
The Royal Marines have been in RMB Chivenor since Oct 1995, but never has the bond between the public and the troops been so strong. In the sunshine and cloudless sky over Barnstaple the men and women from Commando Logistic Regiment marched proudly through the town, to the cheers and applause of their families, friends and locals.
The troops marched through the town to take the Royal salute from HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, who is Capt General Royal Marines. The Dukes presence added another level to the already joyous crowd, and it was plain to see from the smiles that everyone had a good time.Photographer: LA(Phot) James Crawford
