Hi Alan,
Can you post where your information comes from that the (RMA) flaming bomb on a globe and laurel (1922/23) was also used by RME please. Or give the details of the publication. Always willing to learn but I havenít heard that one before. Or have I the wrong end of the stick.
Regards
Irv
Ps pictures would be great if you have them

It might help your research themes if you could obtain a copy of 'Personal Distinctions - 350 Years of Royal Marines Uniforms and Insignia' by John Rawlinson ... Royal Marines Historical Society Special Publication 41 ... ISBN 978-1-908123-09-1. 316 pages.

No, other than that Bosleys sold a RME OSD two part badge a while back - seperate grenade bearing "RME" on the ball worn above the globe and laurel.

Some badges listed at auction, apparently as RME:
