Royal Marines Tamar, located within HM Naval Base Devonport, was established in August 2013 as the Amphibious Centre of Excellence incorporating 1 Assault Group Royal Marines and 539 Assault Squadron. It is now responsible for the training and delivery of all Landing craft and crews. Any further moves of Royal Marines Units are under review as part of the Defence estate optimisation strategy 'Better Defence Estate'.
