In the early Days nearly every Infantry Regiment in the British Army found itself at some time taking part in a Naval Battle, by the mid-eighteenth Century this aragement had proved unsatisfactory.So therefore evolved the Sea Soldiers,who being both soldier and Sailor,could fight equally well either on land or sea.Thus was born the Admirals Regiment formed 28th October 1664 and the name 'Marines' first appeared in the records in 1672.Since then the Marines have taken part in more battles on land and sea,all over the World,than any other branch of the British Armed Forces.In 1827 it was decided to present a new colour to each of the four Royal Marine Divisions George 1V was presented with a list of no less than 106 notable actions in which they had taken part,in order that he might select those which should be emblazoned on the colours.His Majesty finding it impossible to choose,directed: That the Globe Circled with Laurel should be the distinguishing badge as the most appropiate emblem of The Corps whose duties carried them to all parts of the Globe in every quarter of which they had earned laurels by their valour and good conduct.The King also directed that his own cypher GR1V,should be carried in perpetuity. The new Colours bore as well the Motto: Per Mare Per Terram, the foul anchor of the Amiralty,and Gibraltar, to commemorate the capture of the Rock.
