This Wednesday evening comedy series from Associated-Rediffusion spotlighted the traditional rivalry between the men of the Royal Marines and the Royal Navy (in this case, the crew of the HMS Marigold).
Episodes featured petty squabbles, minor battles and endless joking between the two forces.
Principal among the protagonists were Leading Seaman White (Alan White) and Marine Corporal Surtees (Ronald Hines), with superior officers like Lt. Raleigh (Henry McGee) and Major Howard (Jack Allen) also in the fray.
