CHILDREN’S observational skills and memory will be put to the test during a host of workshops this weekend, designed to give them an insight into life as a Royal Marine.

Taking place at the Royal Marine Museum on Southsea seafront, ‘Learn Royal Marines Skills’ activities are aimed at kids aged four to 14.

At them, kids will learn to practice their observation skills and test their memory while learning about some of the more unusual objects at the museum.

The sessions are running on both Saturday and Sunday, during museum opening hours of 10am until 5pm. Normal admission prices apply.

Also at the museum, Commando Adventures has been taking place all week and is still running today. During this event, children are taught how to build tents and how to patrol a location to keep it secure from the enemy - all important skills for Royal Marines.
