I'm talkin' 7 courses, foie gras, champagne kinda stuff
Cost ! Personally I'd give everyone the day off. Today it falls on a weekend, next year it falls on a Tuesday .New dress uniforms for the Army
It's the same thing today. When a law is drawn up it goes into power when the ‘authority’ signs it. On your CME (corporal's course) you will be asked to give the date of the creation of the Legion. 10 March 1831(...) Some say it's actually March 9th 1831 and not March 10. (...)
Les Rosbifs / Yanks / Anglos won’t give a sh*t! Any excuse to have a good piss up will be fine with them! The French? Oh dear! Still can’t get their dates together!(...) Absolutely no excuse for the Rosbifs and Yanks to have sharper dress uniforms than us. You're French; act like it. I don't care if those duded at St-Cyr get mad because they're no longer the prettiest princess.
Papillon will know better than me but i think the Argyll & bolton wanderers were working closly with The Marines. There is a good documentary about the argylls in Plymouth...Sexpert,
Chas is a gentle soul albeit he served in the days of Noah's Ark. Also he nearly landed up in the Gordon Highlanders having his medical in Bath Street Glasgow.
The look of horror on the recruiting Sgts' face when callow young Chas said; Sorry Sgt I am an RM Reservist.
Response from said Sgt ; They must have been scraping the barrel to take the likes of you.
I greatly admire the Jocks and their regiments prior to wretched decimation was superb.

9 parts..The RM had 2 'Chummy Regiments'. The first was the Queen's now the PWRR. In days of yore the Marines helped survivors of ship wrecked Queen's and took them and their families back to Chatham where they housed them. In perpetuity the Queens wore the Warrant Officers blue lanyard as do now the PWRR.
The Argylls combined with the survivors of HMS Repulse and HMS Prince of Wales to fight as a composite unit in Malaya and across the causeway into Singapore. They went into captivity as a composite unit under the command of the Argyll commanding officer. When he died an RM captain took over. In memory thereof the Argyll Bowl annual football match was instituted.
One PWRR and one Argyll officer is seconded to the RM every year and vice versa. All have to be commando qualified.
After the RM and HKP, I became a TA officer with the Queen's 6/7 (V),
