Marines of the Royal Navy (V)


(Circa TA1640)

The marines that serve in Gondor's navy or fight on behalf of the Crown take pride in their skills. Many labored as seamen before officially entering the profession. Although essentially seaborne warriors trained somewhat in the art of handling a ship, these skilled boarders bear the triple burden of fighting the sea, battling an age-old nemesis, the Haradrim, and defending Gondor against a new threat, the Corsairs of Umbar. This training package is open to all Gondorian citizens.
