There were CS marines on board the CSS Shanandoah. It was the only CSN ship to circumnavigate the globe (to include stops in Micronesia--commemorated on that island's modern postage stamps) as well as docking in Melbourne Australia to a warm welcome down under. Australia was UK territory and UK was officially neutral. US consulate office at that time protested strongly and the Confederates had to weigh anchor and amscray from Australian territorial waters but not before Melbourne hosted a large "Buccaneer Ball" for the rebels.

As I'd said, I'd known about this, I figured it'd be relevant here....
