    Marines and Royal Marines did serve ashore. From 1755 they were established in three divisions, at Chatham, Portsmouth, and Plymouth. Their duties included providing guards for the barracks and the dockyard, and at Haslar Naval Hospital; assisting the civile authorities to suppress riots and disturbances; and recruitment and training.
