    you have to be very fit and pass the all arms commando course! you then continue on with their in house course! its a complete ball breaker!!

    their role is naval gunfire support unit! its like an artillery observer for naval artillery!

    very good outfit and a very professional bunch!

    148batt is part of 29 Commando. 29 are RA soldiers & are required to undertake all arms commando.

    The house courses at 148 (and 4/73) are not secret but are left intentionally vague...Either-way beware the shocker in the locker!

    Unfortunately I dont know if 'badged' commandos can go straight to 148 or are required to pass through 29 before hand?

    148 is an RA unit but does have others attached. The place they are located might give a clue to the work they do.
