When Major Malloy meets Agent McGee he makes a joke about McGee being of Irish descent and says he won't "hold this against" him. Malloy is also an Irish name and Malloy presumably has Irish ancestry.

Factual errors 

The uniform of Major Malloy is wholly incorrect. The Royal Marine (RM) Lovat uniform has dulled buttons and is worn with the green beret, rather than the peaked cap. The crown rank insignia is incorrect and the uniform is missing the RM flashes and the globe devices. Finally, even an experienced marine would be unlikely to have so many medal ribbons.

The Royal Navy ship seen is not a type used by the Royal Navy, but is a US Navy destroyer.

Malloy's cellphone number shows on screen as starting +44 (016... All British cellphones start 07, so it should have been +44 (07... instead.

Major Malloy's uniform is not British Royal Marine. The uniform used is reminiscent of WW2 United States Army (i.e.: brown) RM service dress is Green Lovat with bronze Badges and buttons. Parade Dress - Dark Blue with peaked cap of white with a red band. The crown insignia used on Major Malloy's shoulder epaulets is not of British type, but resembles that used by officers of the Jordan military, but not majors.

Whilst it is correct that the Union Jack would be flown at the bow when docked, a second one would not be flown from the masthead amidships, as a later shot shows - instead a White Ensign would be flown at the stern. Once under way, the Union Jack would be removed and the White Ensign transferred to the masthead.

The Chief Petty Officer seen consoling the victim's wife has a Gold Surface Warfare pin which is only worn by Officers in the US Navy. The correct Surface Warfare pin the Chief Petty Officer should have been wearing would have been Silver

The English never had the first Marine corps ever. In 1665 the first real Marine corps as so, was deployed by the dutch Marine so the American marines decent from the Dutch and not from the English.

Update: The Royal Marines were formed in 1755 as the Royal Navy's infantry troops. However, the marines can trace their origins back to the formation of the English Army's "Duke of York and Albany's maritime regiment of Foot" at the grounds of the Honourable Artillery Company on 28th October 1664. In addition, it was stated that the U.S Marine Corp was modelled after the British Marines, not the Dutch. So, there actually two things wrong with the initial statement; date and origin.
