    Huh??:eek: You're joking of course!, hey! were you in the Marines?, "Bootneck" is an old name for a Marine, dating from the days when they wore their uniform jackets buttoned up to their necks, the British Royal Marine's badge is the "Globe & Laurel" my father-in-law was in "The Royals", as they're known, & he fought in WW2.

    :tank:The name Bootneck for a Royal Marine and US Marine Leatherneck goes back to the days when their uniform had a high collar of leather around their neck to protect their neck from blows from cutlasses when ether boarding or being boarded. The Royal Marines were originally formed from the trained bands of London in 1664 and originally had uniforms jackets of yellow and their nick name was yellow backs. Many regiments of the British Army have also served as marines especially in WW2 for example the men from Royal Artillery who served on merchant ships manning the weapon on the ship.:tank:

    Sorry about the break had to go to work and now there. No Paul and I were not joking many of the houses in Cornwall have been sold as holiday homes which has put the price up stopping the local people affording to be able to buy, especialy in coastal comunities. No havent the foggiest when you move up the ranking and does it realy matter.

    My father-in-law joined the RM Cadets at 16, joining the Royal Marines at 18, he was in the North Sea in WWII, escorting convoys, & he was torpedoed twice by Nazi U Boats.
