RM in gulf wars

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What did the marines do in the two gulf wars?
  2. All of them or just some?
  3. Not a lot in GW1, quite a bit more in GW2.
  4. First Gulf War I was still at school, but my older brother was a Lance Jack then in 40Cdo. They did Op Safe Haven protecting the Kurds in Northern Iraq / Turkey just after the end of hostilities.
    As for the second one, he disappeared about 2 weeks before the invasion, and came back to the UK about 3 days after it started, job done for him.
