The Royal Indian Marine was a precursor to the Royal Indian Navy. Until some time after the Great War, its officers were British officers of the Royal Navy.

History

This force evolved from a private navy to protect and support the interests of the East India Trading Company. In the period immediately preceding the Dreadnought Era, it had been called "Her Majesty's Indian Marine". This named was altered to the "Royal Indian Marine" in 1892.

In October, 1934 during the tenure of Walwyn, the force was renamed as the Royal Indian Navy.
