The Royal Marines in action at Trafalgar.

Hmm.  So is this where the saying "if you die first we're splitting your gear" came from?

What is that bag they're digging thru?  Appears much more robust than I imagined. 

This all brings me back to the Marine/Soldier load.  How much of it is snivel gear?  Is the increase in weight due to how our operations are conducted? If you're not rucking all day and operating out FOBS, mechanized vehicles or being flown in for a day or two operations then that would make you go heavier than REAL light fighters would deem acceptable.

Just wondering out loud.
