Book Review: Tracing your Royal Marine Ancestors a Guide for Family Historians by Richard Brooks and Matthew Little. ISBN 978 1 84415869. Review by John Curry

The book title almost succeeded in putting me of this small 172 page book, fortunately the name Richard Brooks caught my eye. As I greatly enjoyed his monumental Cassell's Battlefields of Britain & Ireland, I thought I would devote a few moments to reading his latest work.

What I discovered was a fascinatingly detailed account of the Royal Navy Marines from the 17th century to the present day. The book has chapters on organisation, administration, operations etc. Each chapter is packed with interesting little details, such as for 19c exercise they practiced sham fights across the deck (preferably without bayonets).

I did appreciate the quote `There is no fighting force under the crown less understood than the marines. Few trouble themselves to know more than that they are useful. Why they exist or why they are useful are not questions which attract attention'. Army and Navy Gazette 7 February 1874.

In addition, as the book was ostensibly targeted at those tracing their ancestors, it has a detailed compilation of places, such as websites, to find out more about the marines.

I found the book was not expensive and was well worth exploring.
The book is published in association with the Royal Marines Museum.
