To commemorate the 350th Anniversary of the formation of the Royal Marines a charity rugby match has been organised in Gibraltar, the Corps first major battle honour, between Gibraltar anf the Royal Marines RFC. As a warm up there will also be a Gibraltar Veterans XV versus a Royal Marines Invitation XV which willl feature serving and former Royal Marines and Royal Navy players as well as former International players such as Colin Charvis (Wales, British & Irish LIons)), Paul Sackey (England), Leigh B Davies (Wales), Paul Sampson (England) and many more. The aim of the inaugral ‘Gibraltar Bowl’ is to raise not only funds for the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Children’s Fund but just as importantly to raise awreness of the work carried out by the charity.
It is hoped that this will be an enduring event beyond the 350th anniversary.
If anybody wishes to buy a replica, bespoke playing shirt (loose fit) they can be purchased through this link where £5 from each shirt sold will go towards RMCTF and RNRMCF
