Following on from the success of the inaugural event last year, the Corps Families Weekend returned last weekend with fun for all the family.
Last year’s event was the first since the amalgamation of the RMA Reunion Weekend and the CTCRM Families Day. There were two primary reasons for this: firstly to try and help the RMA achieve its evolutionary aim of becoming the central pillar of the Corps Family; secondly to reduce the number of working weekends for busy CTCRM staff.
A brilliant & well-attended Corps Families Weekend at @CommandoTRG with @theRMFamily. Agility was my theme: whether it be RM Cadets, our world-class @RMBandService, serving RMs & Army Cdos or RMA, the Corps Family is innovating to thrive in the years to come. #DesignForTheFuture pic.twitter.com/joPRum3dTL— CG Royal Marines (@MajGenStickland) September 17, 2018
With a perfect day’s weather, the sun shone over the many stalls, rides and attractions laid out across the Drill Shed and Parade Ground. Doughnuts, hot dogs, and burgers were just some of the foods on offer, with visitors also having the opportunity to kit themselves out in the official Royal Marines tartan as well as the latest merchandise from the Royal Marines Shop.
Stunning phot - and a stunning view of the bottom field, seldom appreciated by those running around it at the time. Btw : thank you for supporting our Corps families weekend, I know kids (big and small) will love learning about our latest helos. Thank you. https://t.co/sv1S4i0Yl0— Commandant of CTCRM (@ColMikeTanner) September 14, 2018
Kids also enjoyed taking on an Inflatable Assault Course, various sports challenge and Go-Karts, whilst checking out the other attractions including the charity village and some pretty hoofing face painting!
The Corps Families Weekend is also a great opportunity for the Royal Marines Family to come together and compete in a series of sports, including Rugby and Football.

On Sunday the traditional RMA Parade paid tribute to former comrades and this year’s march-past was spiced up by the RMA Riders parading their standard on wheels ahead of a number of bikes.
