27 November - Marine Day

110
The establishment of the Day of Marine Corps in Russia by the order of the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy No. 253 from 15 in July 1996 of the Year “On the introduction of annual holidays and professional days in the specialty” is associated with a landmark national event stories more than three hundred years ago. By decree of Peter the Great, the sovereign who created his own Navy for Russia, the first regiment of "naval soldiers" was formed. The Emperor signed the highest order of November 27 1705 of the year on the new style. In commemoration of this historical event, a professional holiday was established - the Day of Marine Corps.


The history of amphibious assault goes back centuries. It is not known for certain whose fleet began to practice landing fighters on the enemy shore. It must be assumed that the first attempts to land combat sabotage groups from the sea were made in ancient times, since the first warships appeared.

In the modern sense of the word, the British are considered pioneers in the field of sea landing: it was they who began to practice landing from ships. Thanks to the efforts of the first emperor, the Russian army created a special marine corps only a little later than their European counterparts: in 1698, the first marine corps team in Russian history was formed from the crew of the Orel ship. After the successful completion of the Swedish campaign, the sovereign decided to create a whole regiment of naval soldiers, taking as a basis the team of the newly created Baltic fleet.

The fighters, dressed in vests and black peakless caps, were distinguished by their steadfastness and fearlessness in the Crimean War, courage in the battles of the First World War, terrified the aggressor in the Great Patriotic War. The post-war history of the Soviet marines was also rich. Our "black berets" took part in the Vietnam War, in the wars in Syria and Egypt, Guinea and Angola, in Afghanistan and Chechnya.

The Marine Corps is designed to conduct combat operations as part of landing and capture portions of the coast, coastal defense facilities and enemy infrastructure. This highly mobile branch of service is used to provide cover for naval bases and to keep occupied bridgeheads. Landing of marine units is carried out from landing ships and boats, ship helicopters aviationas well as floating machines.

      Five "historical" cents repeat :

      - ... The history of amphibious assault goes back centuries. It is not known for certain whose fleet began to practice the landing of soldiers on the enemy shore. It must be assumed that the first attempts to land combat sabotage groups from the sea were made in ancient times, from the moment the first warships appeared ...

      Indeed, the history of landing from the "water" goes back to antiquity, it can be said about our ancestors that in the historical literature on professional detachments the account starts from the date 1181 of the year — the capture of the Cheremis city of Koksharov by the uykushniki.

      The glory of the pioneers in the creation of such troops as the Marines belongs to the British - 1664 year, but wink despite the fact that the decree of Peter the Great dates back to 16 (27) on November 1705, the first detachments of the marine corps were created much earlier and also by decree of the head of state ... in 1698, the first crew of marines in Russian history was formed from the crew of the Orel ship ... let me disagree bully The first team of marines in Russian history was created much earlier:

      --- back in the middle of the 16th century, by order of Ivan the Terrible, special teams of archers (marine soldiers) were formed, which became the first professional marines of the Fatherland.

      With this one - ... in the 1698 year from the crew of the ship "Eagle" also not all right what , many sources say that a detachment of 35 and Nizhny Novgorod archers, led by Ivan Domozhirov, was formed on the "Eagle" in 1669 year .

      But be that as it may again - Happy Holiday! drinks hi

      Russian marines in a Russian fairy tale:

      - ... the prince went, forgetting the grief,
      Sat on the tower and the sea
      He began to look; sea ​​suddenly
      Bleeding around,
      Splashed in a noisy run
      And left on the coast
      Thirty-three heroes;

      In the scales, like the heat of grief,
      Knights go couples,
      And shining with gray hair,
      Uncle goes ahead
      And to the city leads them.

    In the Marine Corps, it’s an honor to serve
    Every fighter knows this.
    You will become a real man there,
    You will be just a bastard!
    On the day of the Marine Corps,
    We wish you a carefree service,
    But if something, then at once
    The enemy could give in the eye!
    Though at sea, even on land,
    You will not find a soldier better!

    my congratulations to the marines.

    Hello all.
    I join in the congratulations.
    Today we drink for the marines,
    For a strong spirit and strong disposition.
    We wish the warriors success,
    After all, fear is not known to them in life.
    Open spaces obey them
    Boundless blue seas
    And at home fields and mountains await
    Love of relatives
    The warmth of friends.
    So we drink to the marines,
    Defenders of their country.
    Seven feet you friends under the keel
    And safe waves for you.
    drinks drinks drinks
    I thank the author for the excellent photo selection.

    Congratulations on the holiday. The photo is just super, there are really unique photos, which was a pleasant surprise for me. Handsome courageous guys are not alien to fashion haircuts (navy force, which always distinguished a sailor) who gave their lives and achieved their tasks. This is how the force smiles in the photo, and after a moment they destroyed the enemy with a grenade and bayonet. Marines never shamed themselves during the Second World War or in the Caucasus during the well-known events. so it was so it will be so. Once again with the holiday. soldier

    Congratulations to all the sailors and marine officers on their holiday! All of their classmates-marines from the Far Eastern Higher Military Combined Arms Command School named after Marshal of the Soviet Union KK Rokossovsky Termez experienced special pride in 12.02.1989/XNUMX/XNUMX when he saw the banner of the Navy in a column of withdrawing troops on one of the BMP. He was not too lazy, he jumped from his armor and found out that the banner was raised by our graduate marine, company from the neighboring regiment.
