Come on Guzzler/ Jenny you defo need more Corps History lessons......

"The Corps of Royal Marines, the infantry land fighting element of the United Kingdom's Royal Navy, was formed as part of the Naval Service in 1755. However, it can trace its origins back as far as 1664, when English soldiers first went to sea to fight the Dutch."

A standard size kitchen stool, ikea branded to bring the level of classiness up a bit.
Ikea has 3 standards of crappiness, shite, shit and shitty. You pay pennies for the lower cheap shite range. A pound or two for the shit range and well ripped off for the shitty top of the range crap with good ideas. All this with a picture of some Swedish interior designer laughing at you as you hand over your credit card.

I do like their hotdogs, meatballs and strawberry tarts.

Yes Woody I'm aware of that, but isn't it generally accepted that the 'birth' of the corps is considered to be 1664? That ties in with the 350th anniversay as well.

I stand correction on this, but think I've got it right.
