Details

The Admiral's Regiment, the direct ancestor of the present day Royal marines, was raised in 1664. As early as 1827 the Corps had seen so much fighting by land and sea, all over the world, that there was no room left upon its clours for the inscription of further battle honours.

 

King George IV solved the problem by ruling that the Globe, circled with Laurel, should be the distinguishing badge of the Corp 'whose duties carried them to all parts of the Globe in every quarter of which they had earned their laurels by their valour and good conduct'

 

The valour and good conduct are implicit in most of these Royal Marine stories. It is however, unlikely that any of the events decribed would qualify for a battle honour. As any marine will tell you - some pretty strange things have happened from time to time.
