I've become embroiled in one of those silly bloody arguments, as one does (or, as I do, anyway), that centres on an entry in that great fount of all factual truth, Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naval_Service My initial considered opinion was â€œbolloxâ€. After 10+ years of Noo Labia, though, Iâ€™m no longer sure of anything. The salient point of the argument is, are the Marines an Arm of the RN or part of Wikiâ€™s â€œNaval Serviceâ€? I must confess to having been confused towards the end of the last Century when the RM appeared on the Army ORBAT and demanded on QMG for non training material.
