"A few 'salt encrusted' Marines".

We hear the words, but we don't see the action. A report about the future of the Dockyard and Drake was quite stirring. The bit about Admirals and Politicians living in Hampshire is also very relevent.

If the Government – any Government – thinks it can strip away our Navy and leave us with a handful of salt-encrusted Marines, a few small ships and the job of dismantling the ancient cores of old nuclear submarines, they can think again. It's time to bite back.
Is that all we are to have? I don't think so. I have said before and am totally convinced, (from seeing it from the inside), that it is to become a Marine base and the likes of Poole in Dorset, and Bickley, will be no longer.

Like Lambs to the Slaughter.
