The Globe & Laurel Magazine was launched in May 1892 and has been in constant production ever since, celebrating its 130th Anniversary in 2022.

The magazine and digital edition are produced by a small, dedicated team based in the Royal Marines Corps Secretariat on Whale Island in Portsmouth. We dispatch approximately 10,000 printed copies of each edition worldwide, to keep past, present and future Royal Marines up to date with today’s Corps.

The magazine includes reports from all major Units, Ships’ Detachments, Reserves, RM Band Service, Cadets and Association Branches, as well as reports on Reunions, Families’ pages, ‘Around the Messes’, and Corps Sport. There are also book reviews, letters, historical features and individual articles of interest as well as updates on fundraising and events for RMA – The Royal Marines Charity. One of the most popular pages is ‘Where Do You Read Yours?’ a feature which shows readers of the Globe & Laurel photographed reading their copy of the magazine, some in the most bizarre settings and far-flung places across the globe, so why not send your photo into us of you ‘reading yours’?
