In the run up to Weymouth at War and Veterans Week in Weymouth we thought folk might be interested in this archive movie of a mock assault on Weymouth beach by Royal Marine Commandos that we think was shot in the mid 1950’s

It seems that back in the day Weymouth was just as much of an eventful resort as it is these days.

If anyone can help date this footage or knows anything interesting about it we’d love you to let us know by adding a comment to the page … thank you.
