Wrong again, hero. Royal Marines are mostly commonly placed with US Marines. Royal Marines in general, are not Special Operations. Only SOF units within the Royal Marines will work along side US military SOF.

Royal Marines have worked with US Marines in support of SOF operations.

no the royal marines were the first onto the beaches of iraq along with the navy seals
yes the royal marines and the US marines might help eachother taking casualties to the aid station and stuff but the royal marines must fight alongside the seals and rangers just like the royal marines train one of the sealteams in return

Look, you're always banging on about this. No-one seems to agree with you, so if you're gonna insist on it, how's about trying to back it up with some links to info that supports your argument?
