Abstract

Royal Navy General Duties Medical Officers (RN GDMOs) are employed in land operations in Afghanistan in much the same way as British Army GDMOs. In this article the author explores how time with a Royal Marine Commando unit and completion of Commando training in parallel to thorough medical training are beneficial for the roles a RN GDMO is expected to undertake in Helicopter Assault Force Operations.
