Royal Marines were formed in 1664. During 1667 they were part of a
detachment guarding Landguard Fort against the Dutch, who attempted to
capture the Fort. It was the last time that a foreign invasion force
set foot on English soil. It was also the first time that the Royal
Marines fought on land. The Royal Marines have a long action packed 352
year history. Local Royal Marines Rod Spinks and Steve Searle have set
up a display within the Fort to commemorate its history. A display that
grows by the day. All donations are very much appreciated and go to www.helpourwounded.co.uk
