February Marines

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!

A selection of previous posts for February:

  • RM Barracks, Hobart, Tasmania

  • Raid on Deception Island

  • 116th Inf Bde RM

  • A Life on the Ocean Wave

  • L/Cpl Matt Croucher GC

  • Sinking of the Troopship Khedive Ismail

  • The Battle of Martinique

  • Matthew White, OC 1 Raiding Squadron Royal Marines

  • Operations on the River Ancre

  • Anthony 'Tony' Cross awarded the George Cross

  • Occupation of Lemnos
