Royal Marines birthday dinner

Douglas Carswell attended the North-East Essex Royal Marine’s Association dinner on Tuesday evening. The dinner was in aid of the Corp’s birthday.

Douglas Carswell says “I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The Royal Marine Association does an incredible amount for both serving marines and veterans by helping them stay in touch with one another, and it also helps to raise vital funds for charities that support our valiant Royal Marines.”

In April last year the MP for Clacton and Harwich visited marines serving in Helmand province. Helmand has seen some of the most ferocious fighting since the campaign in Afghanistan began back in 2001; the Royal Marines have been right on the front-line. 

Douglas says “The selfless heroism of the Royal Marines is one we in Britain should be proud of. Their great courage and spirit are legendry and I will do everything I can to support honourable organisations like the North-East Essex Royal Marine Association.”
