The Royal Marines Museum - Royal Marines
The Royal Marines are without a museum, their story hidden from view. After being deemed no longer fit for purpose and with collections at risk, the old museum in Eastney closed in 2017.

Since then, the National Museum of the Royal Navy has been working towards creating a new Royal Marines Museum at the heart of the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, placing the singular history of the Corps in its rightful place within the wider story of the Royal Navy.
Soldier an Sailor Too - Royal Marines Hi
On the occasion of the Royal Marines 350th Birthday perhaps it is worth listing some of their
achievements. This booklet takes the form of a day by day diary covering the variety of tasks they
have undertaken.

A few dates are chosen to show the diversity of the tasks undertaken and the variety of locations where marines have served.
