The Royal Marines

I discovered this 350th Anniversary tribute a few years after the fact, but it is worth seeing nevertheless. I will never forget seeing the bands of the Royal Marines and the Black Watch when they toured the United States during our bicentenary year, and I doubt there is in all the world a smarter uniform than that of the Royal Marines. Theirs is a glorious history and they have been vital and valorous partners to our American armed forces throughout the world.
