    At the outbreak of WWII 4 Battalions were formed. 1st & 2nd were given the Northern Sector of the Island whilst the 3rd had the Southern Sector.
    The role of the KOMR was varied from beach defence at beach posts, defence against low flying aircraft on airfields, guard supply dumps, help in unloading cargoes from ships
    which got through & filling in bomb craters in runways.
    Following the attacks on HMS Illustrious they helped recover the living & dead.
