Landing in Murmansk

Unit/ Formation: Royal Marines

Location: Murmansk

Period/ Conflict: Russian Intervention

Year: 1918

Date/s: 6th March 1918

British involvement in Russia started before the end of the First World War.

In order to prevent war materials and supplies sent to Russia from falling into German hands, or being carried off without payment, a party of Royal Marines landed at Murmansk on 6 March 1918.

The British force in Murmansk steadily expanded over the next few months. For similar reasons an Anglo-Japanese force landed at Vladivostok on 9 April 1918.
