Royal Navy Fleet Protection Team
The skill of the Royal Navy's Fleet Protection Team has been demonstrated in a short video produced by HMS Kent's boarding team. The video of the men from 43 Commando Fleet Protection Group Royal Marines was compiled while the Portsmouth based frigate carried out maritime patrols in the Gulf. The Fleet Protection Group, based at HM Naval Base Clyde, is made up of three rifle squadrons and an HQ squadron. It is their role to provide military support to convoys as well as conducting boarding operations on non compliant ships in line with UN resolutions in the Gulf.
