I think this feature is great, but I can't see anything to do with the Royal Marines in this article. Is is due to the fact that it is about the "Royal Dragoon Guards" and it's simply flagging it up?

It remains an interesting article nevertheless, it's great to see they're making real progress with the Iraqi soldiers and building for the future.

We have 2 different search criteria that our system looks for,

1) Anything on Google that has "Royal Marines" but without (tonga, music) no disrespect to the Royal Marine band but as they were a show event 80% of the time and get lots of reports news stories about them, around 10 news articles a day, so had to leave them out of the search.

2) Second is a search that goes through MOD Oracle, it flags up anything with Iraq, Afghanistan and Royal Navy. So that isn't specific to the Royal Marines.

The second may not be 100% relevant to anyone going in as RM Recruit, but is extremely helpful to those trying for the POC and AIB. That's the main reason we have that one, as officer candidates are expected to know just about everything going off in the public domain.

All the best
