The Amphibious Fighting Force of the United Kingdom.
Created in 1664 now amongst the top two Regiments of the United Kingdom (the other being its rival the Parachute Regiment). Far superior to the US Marine Corps, in that they are Commandos, having completed 32 Weeks of basic training, with a 30 Mile Speed march in 8 Hours (7 Hours for Officers) and other tests of physical endurance.
They come under the command of the Royal Navy, and have in their history been rewarded with 10 Victoria Crosses.
Nicolaivich got the definition of the Royal Marines quite wrong.

The Royal Marines were originally called the Duke of York and Albany's Maritime Regiment of Foot.

Once the World's largest Navy, but due to the fact that the British have been corrupted by evil Liberal Ideas successive Governments have abused it and made it dangerously small. However the Officers and Sailors of the Royal Navy are by far the most willing and capable, putting up with crap food, and crap conditions.

Despite common misconception, it is not the Royal Navy that is full of Homosexuals, they are too busy working, and getting women in Port to be dealing with that.
My good those Royal Navy sailors are switched on.

God's (of any religion) chosen people, live in a Green and Pleasant land known as England. Comes from the fact that the Royal Navy was clever enough to give its Sailors a good source of Vitamin C to stop them dropping down dead with scurvy. And as at that time we had the World's largest Navy we needed Sailors to man, see unlike you Americans we don't man equipment, we equip MEN (real men not pansies who hide behind a gun!). A good example of this is the fact that Basra seemed not to hate us, and we could walk around our part of Iraq with berets, whilst the Americans needed 5 metres (Metric term, slightly longer than a Yard) worth of Armour.
Red Neck: Ahh sucks being at sea so long, missin' ma cousin, I got this scurvy too.

Limey: Hmm try this Lime, although we don't molest our cousins where I'm from old chap, can't help on that one! Hmm nice tea, so much better than that bloody awful coffee you chaps drink!
