Congratulations to Signaller Anil Gurung, 248 Gurkha Signal Squadron, 22 Signal Regiment who has successfully completed the All Arms Commando Course (AACC).
127 started the pre-commando course, Signaller Anil is one of only 12 (Eight officers, four Other Ranks) to complete the course. A testament to the strength of his will and character, richly earned the covered green beret and AAC patch which he will proudly bear for the remainder of his career.
The aim of the AACC is to prepare Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force personnel for service with 3 Commando Brigade Royal Marines (RM) by developing the temperament, mental resolve, physical robustness and core military skills necessary in the demanding environment of expeditionary and littoral operations.
The AACC is the only recognised route for regular members of the Armed Forces outside of the RM to become commando trained.
