Deal was the place where Royal Marines were created.
generations, young men, some only fourteen years old, arrived as
raw recruits but left as Royal Marines. Most famously Deal was home
to the Royal Marines School of Music but equally this was the Service
base of instructors, administrators and tutors among others.
The story of the Royal Marines at Deal is told in this unique book by over 200 photographs from the extensive library at the Royal Marines Museum. This pictorial record will be a lasting memento to all who trained or served there, for the people of Deal and all those interested in the Royal Marines in general.
