Royal Marines - 86 Leap Years and counting!


Thank you for visiting or signing up to this blog, I do hope you enjoy reading it, and are as surprised as I am at some of the hidden gems of our glorious history that are to be discovered.

Please come and see the 24 pins for February, a month in which Marines were at the extremes of both West and South, has any other unit in the world conducted an operation that far south, unlikely!

There have been 86 leap years since the birth of the Royal Marines, and Royal Marines would have been deployed somewhere in the world on the 29th February on almost all of them, so we still have a few to add!

Leap years since 1664;

1664, 1668, 1672, 1676, 1680, 1684, 1688, 1692, 1696, 1704, 1708, 1712, 1716, 1720, 1724, 1728, 1732, 1736, 1740, 1744, 1748, 1752, 1756, 1760, 1764, 1768, 1772, 1776, 1780, 1784, 1788, 1792, 1796, 1804, 1808, 1812, 1816, 1820, 1824, 1828, 1832, 1836, 1840, 1844, 1848, 1852, 1856, 1860, 1864, 1868, 1872, 1876, 1880, 1884, 1888, 1892, 1896, 1904, 1908, 1912, 1916, 1920, 1924, 1928, 1932, 1936, 1940, 1944, 1948, 1952, 1956, 1960, 1964, 1968, 1972, 1976, 1980, 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2016, 2020
