This week the archive copy of the Globe & Laurel is from July / August 1982, featuring the Falklands Campaign on the cover. Understandably 1982 features heavily in this series of downloads as it is the 35th Anniversary of the Falklands War this year and the Corps' involvement in this campaign is a significant aspect of our Corps History. In this latest edition, the Globe & Laurel covers the main push towards Port Stanley and the eventual raising the flag at the Governor's residence on 14th June 1982, with the cover featuring Maj Gen Jeremy Moore, Commander Land forces Falkland Islands and Brig Julian Thompson confirming their plans for the final attack on Port Stanley.

The Globe & Laurel Magazine has been in production since May 1892 and is produced by a small dedicated team based in the Royal Marines Corps Secretariat Department on Whale Island in Portsmouth. The Globe & Laurel team dispatch over 12,000 copies worldwide each edition, to keep past, present and future Royal Marines up to date with today’s Corps.
On average the magazine has 88 pages, including reports from all major RM Units, Ships’ Detachments, RM Band Service, Reserves, Cadets and Association Branches, as well as reports on Reunions, families pages, ‘Around the Messes’, and Corps Sport. There are also book reviews, letters and individual features of interest. One of the most popular pages is ‘Where Do You Read Yours?’ a competition which shows readers of the Globe & Laurel photographed reading their copy of the magazine in the most bizarre or far-flung places across the world, so why not send your photo into us of you reading your copy?
