A Historic Journey to Raise Awareness for Good Mental Health

Follow our live blog of the Norway 75 team updates! In June 2018, a team of 8, which includes serving and former Royal Marines, will traverse the length of Norway by sea and land, retelling heroic stories of WWII combined Commando raids in unique and captivating ways, and commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the infamous Telemark raids. As they embark on this historical journey throughout Norway, the team will be raising funds and awareness for The Royal Marines Charity.
