By Ken Divall 

In addition to providing a detailed history of the Royal Marines, this title contains much information on how to research your Royal Marine ancestor. The author, Ken Divall, a former regular solider in the Royal Engineers, explores a variety of resources, including records at The National Archives, The National Maritime Museum, The Imperial War Museum and The Newspaper Library. He writes with erudition and enthusiasm for his subject, crafting a book of reference that covers everything from war medals, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and online records.  

"I wish I had had access to a book such as this when I was writing my history of the Royal Marines." - Maj General Julian Thompson
