Team story

[p]Commandos from the Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME Commandos) need to raise £4,000 in order to build a memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum to honour all past and present REME Commandos. As such we are going to undertake physical challenges outlined below. Your donations will go directly to the REME Commando memorial.[/p][p]The five physical challenges are:[/p][p][b]12 hours of the Royal Marine Basic Fitness Test [/b](every hour on the hour for twelve hours, members of 29 Commando Workshops will complete the annual Royal Marine Basic Fitness Test consisting of 5 pull-ups, 50 sit-ups and a 1.5 mile booted run). [b][i]COMPLETED! [/i][/b][i]Team picture below.[/i][/p][p][b]341 tandem bike ride [/b](2 tradesmen from 24 Commando Workshops, Cpl Greenoff and LCpl Paylor, have built a tandem bike from scratch using their REME craftsmanship and will be cycling between their barracks at RMB Chivenor to Rock Barracks, Woodbridge, covering 341 miles over 5 days on a tandem bike). [i]Pictures below.[/i][/p][p][b]62 mile foot race between the two current Army Commando barracks [/b](teams of twelve will run from 29 Commando Workshops in The Royal Citadel, Plymouth, to 24 Commando Workshops in Royal Marines Barracks Chivenor, North Devon).[/p][p][b]Op FRANKTON 60 mile row [/b](teams of six will each row the distance covered by the Cockleshell Heroes during the daring Commando raid of Op FRANKTON in World War 2 which required Commandos to kayak 60 miles up the Gironde estuary to Bordeux harbour).[/p][p][b]30 miler Land Rover drag and log carry [/b](29 Commando Workshops will complete 30 miles (the distance of the final Commando test) split between carrying a log and dragging/pulling a Land Rover).[/p][p]We would like to have all monies raised by the end of July 2018 so that the stone mason can begin work on the memorial and have it completed in time for Remembrance Sunday (11 November 2018).[/p]
