Post Army Regiments Acting as Marines
From The Times (30 July 1793), under the header "Ship News":

"Orders are received this day, to embark 200 of the 25th Regiment of Foot, on board his Majesty's ship Syren, of 32 guns, Capt. MANLEY; they are to be carried to Portsmouth, to serve on board the Marlborough, of 74 guns, and the other ships fitting for sea, to the Eastward."

"The 58th Regiment of Foot are to hold themselves in readiness to act as Marines."

I have the honour to be, &c.
