July 1.Rules and Instructions under the Queen's sign manual for the better government of the Marine Regiments, the Queen having thought fit to establish 6 Marine Regiments which are from time to time to be employed on board ship as there shall be occasion and quartered at or as near as may be to our respective Dock Yards when on shore to guard them from embezzlements or any attempt that may be made on them by an enemy.
(1) The pay is to be according to a particular Establishment in that behalf: but in all matters relating to subsistence and clearings they are to be paid as the Land Forces have been with like deductions for clothing and one day's pay.
(2) When on board ship, they are to be allowed an equal proportion of provisions with the seamen without deductions or defalcations from their pay for same and the soldiers shall receive Short Allowance Money as the seamen do.
(3) Such part as shall be ashore shall be mustered by a Commissary in the same manner as the Land Forces excepting only this that at each muster the Commissary shall be obliged to allow all officers who shall appear by authentic vouchers as on board ship: and in order that the parts on board may be paid while they are so the officers of these Marine Regiments on board shall every two months return to the Commissary General of Musters a perfect list of all the officers and soldiers aboard stating their entry, death, and discharge so that the Commissary of Musters may compare these lists with the monthly books which are sent to the Navy Office; which he is hereby required to do and the Navy Office is to permit.
(4) To avoid confusion, not less than 15 marines with an officer are to be put on any ship at any one time.
(5) A particular Paymaster to be appointed to solicit arrears, and receive imprests: and the Navy Treasurer is to issue money to the said Paymaster or his deputy: and the said Paymaster is immediately to issue same to the Officers of and for the said Regiments:
(6) and is to adjust all accounts relating to the said Regiments according to the muster rolls delivered to him by the Commissary: which shall be his vouchers.
(7) To enable the said Paymaster to keep an office and pay clerks &c. he is to be allowed to deduct 6d. per £ out of the moneys issued for said Regiments in the same manner as the poundage is deducted from our Land Forces.
(8) It is left to the Queen or the Generalissimo of our Forces to dispose of the said Regiments (when our service shall not require their being at sea) at such places nearest our several Dock Yards as may be most convenient so to be ready on all occasions for our Fleet, guarding of our Docks or other service.
(9) And whereas it may so happen that there may be occasion for labourers to despatch the necessary work of our Dockyard we do hereby empower our High Admiral to cause to be employed in each of our said Yards so many of the soldiers of the said Regiments as shall be upon the place and to make them such daily allowance for the same (besides their ordinary pay) as to them shall seem reasonable.
