About the Division

"The British Royal Army Marine Division" is a Naval Infantry formed by His Majesty's Royal Marines. It is currently under the command of the Lt. Colonel of the Royal Marines, Matthew MacBellows. It was established in 1751, right after the Marines made the decision to reform.

History

The Royal Marines were formed in October of 1664 with a strength of 1,200 men. They were recruited from the Trainband militia of London and made their first appearance during the Second Anglo-Dutch War (1665-67). The militia were trained under the command of King James II of York, the younger brother of Charles II. In 1702, the Royal Marines formed into six regiments and took part in the War of Spanish Succession. In 1739, the Marines took part in the War of Jenkins' Ear (1739-48). In 1750, the Royal Marines disbanded when The Black Guard was decided in Parliament to replace it as an elite force. This was short lived though as a clash with The Royal Black Guard ensued and though the war was won, there were many losses, including The Black Guard.

Reformation

In late 1751, after much debate in Parliament, The British Royal Marines were reformed into two divisions by Lord Newcastle and placed in the command of Chris Gunhound. As a result, Gunhound's Infantry has become the largest and strongest force in the world, following the Spanish. In 1752, Gunhound retired and was succeeded by Jeremiah Sharkbones, followed by Sir Cj.
