This month I have been concentrating on the Royal Marines Roll of Honour data base, so many entries are just names with no details, and in some cases just RN administration bases, I have managed to find stories for about 30 of our Royal Marines this month and adding more each week.
I hope that as the webpage becomes more widely shared I will start to receive more information from family research, photos in particular.
With regards to this newsletter/ blog in an attempt to keep things fresh I try not to repeat posts that I have submitted before, however with so many new subscribers I thought I would list below some posts from previous years that may interest new readers and also maybe other missed before.
I have mapped 33 key events so far for February, which out of 687 pins all together means I probably have a lot more work to do!
