Having said all that, I take my hat off to the Royal Marines that flew on the Apache Helicopter Rescue in Afghanistan earlier this year. I still can't believe the 3 Army co-pilots got DFCs, the 3 Army pilots & Royal Engineer (Commando trained) who flew on the outside each got Military Crosses- The 3 Royal Marine Commandos got nothing, not even a mention in dispatches.
(One of the young Marines was one of my candidates, who only joined 18 months beforehand.)
