The HMS Endeavour

The building of the replica of HM Barque Endeavour in Western Australia inspired the Regiment to develop a new detachment suitable for earlier periods in Australia's history. A Royal Marine 1805 detachment was eventually chosen. Below are some pictures of our marines (in the company of the 42RHR) participating at the launch, departure and the recient return of the Endeavour to Perth.
