Ten years after the Falklands War, the 'Yomper' statue was unveiled at Eastney and features on the cover image. The Yomper was the first public monument in Britain to commemorate the war and the first in Portsmouth since 1903.

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?
