When the battleship Washington joined the Home Fleet in England.  The american admiral visited the english admiral on his flagship, King George V.
He was escorted to the KGV wardroom, and his marine aid was put in the care of an english marine.
The american was full of himself, had a poor opinion of the british and their ships, and didn't know anything of the Royal Marines.
He noticed the cap insignia of the britsh marine was RM.  What does that mean, he asked.
With great patience, the brit replied, "The Real Marines."

"We've got the torpedo damage temporarily shored up, the fires out and soon will have the ship back on an even keel. But I would suggest, sir, that if you have to take any more torpedoes, you take 'em on the starboard side."   Pops Healy, DCA USS Lexington.
