Description
 
Written by Ken Divall, this new book fills a gap in the genealogical market and provides guidance in tracing ancestors who served in the Royal Marines. The book outlines the records available and where to find them and includes a chapter on the history of the service.

Readers of this book will be able not only to research their Royal Marine ancestors, but also learn a little of the history of one of the most illustrious British military units. Royal Marines have served in more wars and campaigns all over the world, than any other branch of the three services. Add to that the number of far flung places that marines have visited whilst serving aboard Royal Navy warships, and it makes any Royal Marines ancestor a very interesting proposition to research.
