WAPEDIA: What Is The Oldest Marine Unit In The World?

A view of the origin of the marine from a historical perspective.

The word, marine was used for forces of England and United States. However, the word marine comes from the latin- marinus, from mare- sea. And the word navy comes from latin navigia- ships. The word marine, which is the reason why navy was made by man, is therefor more basic than the word navy. Thus the word navy was not the name of the branch of service where ships are used in many European countries such as Spanish, French, Italian, German, Dutch, Swedish and Norwegian. The term- marine, as used by the English and the Americans does not exist in many other languages. The equivalents are called naval infantry or navy infantry (e.g., as in Spain, Germany, and Russia) or coastal infantry.
