No idea mate, but its pretty much the best of british.... so if theres crap going on somewhere, and Britain has any involvement... then you can bet the Royal Marines wont be to far away.

The Royal Marines as a whole are usually serving, deployed operationally in a peace-keeping, humanitarian, surveillance/covert, operational role somewhere in the world on a very regular basis.

A while back I read that the only year they were not on active service in their entire history was in 1967 - not sure of the provenance of that assertion however, because certain elements are always up to something.

On an individual basis, you should expect to deploy with your unit overseas for (very) approximately 6 months in every 18 months.
