guys, as it says, ex-squaddie here. Dont know if this is the place to be, but it looks popular, so any guidance would be helpful
I ned a bit of info to settle a bet in a pub; Why do the Royal Marines, as part of the Royal Navy, salute "Army style" and not "Navy style"? BTW Some proper references would be nice. Basically my local fat Labour councillor challenged me to show him how the navy salute, so when I did the "navy style" he said wrong! cos what about the Royal Marines which are part of the Navy! I did say because they were originally formed as part of the Army, but they are part of the Navy now, and I couldn't answer that bit.
