That's a fine steely- eyed, square- jawed Royal kneeling below the Huey.

Very disappointing that the RN's principle website failed to call them Royal Marines.

I can't really be arsed but I will make the effort just for you WL: MARINES REHEARSE CASUALTY EVACUATIONS IN BENIN
So the Royal Navy website doesn't put the word "Royal" first. Which marines did you think they were reporting on, the North Korean? or does everything need to be spelt out to you in large letters?

It's called attention to detail, something I suspect you have a very limited knowledge of.

Your suspicions are incorrect as those that know me would testify, fortunately you are not one of those and hopefully never will be.

If you read your original post you use the word Royal but not Marine, a petty thing but if you want to criticise the article for attention to detail I would get your own house in order first.

As usual you are just nit picking, I suggest that if that is the only comment you can make on the article then you seriously need to get a life, despite your protestations that you do, in fact, have one. A dubious claim IMO.

Endex from me.

Aren't headlines meant to be succinct to grab your attention? As with most things these days, the detail's in the small print which most idiots don't bother with.

"Royal Marines exercising in Africa have been practising casualty evacuation drills as part of their African Winds deployment."

Ah your faceless supporters. It would appear that you are not aware that serving and retired members of the senior service have the special dispensation of calling Royal Marines 'Royal', this is a term of endearment and respect. To give you the benefit of the doubt you probably were not aware of this due to your cosseted service.

Finkys attention to detail is touching, all stories relating to Her Majesties Royal Marine Commandos should have a trumpet fanfare, fireworks and children holding sparklers. Bless.

Apart from which Finks is a arrogant patronising knob with a limited intellect but I assume irrelevant nit picking keeps him happy.


Shame he doesn't know an awful lot about the RM but that's because he relies on 2nd hand dits but, hey ho, each to his own ;)

Really! Isn't it about time you took a day off and came up for air by removing your head from your own rectum.

Seeing as we're being pedantic, shouldn't that be 'Her Majesty's Royal Marines Commandos'?
