O.T.-Stapfam, Happy 347th Birthday to the Royal Marines, a day early.

Stapfam,
This is starting a day early but I wanted to be sure to send a Birthday Well Wish to all Royal Marines. You guys have 347 years of history of honor and service to the Crown. Well done from the "New Kids", U.S. Marine Corps, "only" 236 years old on 10 November 2011. Semper Fi to our English brethern.


Bill

Bravo, well turned there Stap! Yep that is correct for the anniversary age, I checked the Royal Marines/3d Commando web site to be sure after I guessed when I was telling Monica of the date. I love the history and battle order of the Royal Marines and SAS, SBS and Commando regiments.

Semper Fi, to my brothers across the pond. Thanks for making life so miserable in Ireland that led my family to this land where I could be a United States Marine. My grandparents hated you, that was then this is now, no hard feelings at all, the weather in San Diego couldn't be better. I'm so glad I didn't grow up on that Island. LOL!! Happy Birthday!
