Reservist Commando Engineers are now formally part of the high-readiness regular unit, 24 Commando Engineer Regiment. For the last 37 years, 131 Commando has been an independent sub-unit within 3 Commando Brigade Royal Marines but has always worked closely with their Regular counterparts.

Commanding Officer, Lt Col Tom Salberg, said: “I am extremely proud to take 131 Commando Squadron under command. Their reputation, justly deserved, is of the highest order and they offer significant capability to the Regiment and the Brigade. This is an inclusive organisation, but one that expects the very best. 131 continue to demonstrate the Commando qualities, ethos and attitude we expect, it is great to have them aboard.”

24 Commando currently has soldiers, including reservists from 131, deployed on operations and exercises in the Caribbean, Africa, the USA, Cyprus, Oman, and at sea in the Mediterranean.
