A memorial will be unveiled later today in honour of the so called Cockleshell heroes. In December 1942 ten Royal Marines travelled in canoes to launch a raid on enemy ships in Bordeaux. The marines trained and lived in Southsea.
Lord Paddy Ashdown will unveil the memorial in the grounds of the Royal Marines Museum in Eastney to mark the 70th anniversary of the Cockleshell Heroes formation.
