Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A Naval Brigade is a body of sailors serving in a ground combat role to augment land forces. Within the Royal Navy, a Naval Brigade is a large temporary detachment of Royal Marines and of seamen from the Royal Navy formed to undertake operations on shore, particularly during the mid- to late-19th century. Seamen were specifically trained in land-based warfare at the gunnery school at HMS Excellent in Portsmouth. The Royal Navy fought only one ship-to-ship action (HMS Shah and Amethyst against the Peruvian ship Husacar in 1877) between 1850 and 1914, so, for much of that period, its only active service was on shore, through Naval Brigades formed from the men aboard its vessels.
