I see there are a few threads beginning with the title 'marines'. We are not any old marines but Royal Marines, posters please bare this fact in mind when compiling your thread titles, thank you.

So why is a booty under the rank of Lance Corporal simply called 'Marine Smith, Jones, snodgrass etc'? I can see a lot of people getting a bollocking over this, starting with CGRM. Could be worse, could be calling you all 'Percy'.

I do believe that it would be practical to explain 'Percy' to someone who believes that he is a 'Royal', don't you think? :lol:

Come on now finknottle if you have been in long enough now you would know, that you have broken one of the golden rules don’t ask or tell jack to do something because he will do the opposite, and before you say dare or you won’t he most defiantly will!

Brave man andy; accurate though. The Royals tend to forget they work for us.

Tis ok, we all know that you naughty little Matloets are more likely to sit down, shut up and wind your neck in when Royal is about.

Your our taxi service and mobile artillery wallah's.

Now be quite up back.
 
Perhaps you are right, if the Marines did their duty, as they used to do in the days of sail, ie, shoot the twatts for misbehaving, then they might get some discipline back in the RN.
