"The senior Army officer inspecting Royal Navy sailors ahead of a month of Royal duties described the performance of the 104 men and women as “outstanding”.

From Monday, sailors representing three of the Senior Service’s five fighting arms – the Surface Fleet, Submarine Service and Fleet Air Arm – will stand guard at four Royal residences, beginning with Buckingham Palace.

The officers and ratings have stepped in to help out the Army with many Foot Guards Battalions busy overseas on operations or training for future contingencies."

According the RN's own website the 5 arms are (in order of personal preference)
1) Submarine service
2) General Service
3) Royal Marines
4) RFA
5) Wafu's

There may have been some prejudice in my listing which conflicts with pusser :)

Yep, the fleet air arm supporting the rest :)

I stand by my first comment, there are no RFA or RM there so only 3 fighting arms :)

Such a pity that officers commanding armed guards no longer wear what Seaweed of blessed memory used to call "liquorice leggings".
