What does the US navy term 'semper fi' mean?

I'm english and I don't learn latin anymore, so I was just wondering, I think it means always faithful? Also does the UK navy say it? x

The Marines say it - "Always Faithful".

"Semper Fidelis" is Latin for "Always faithful." Best known to Americans as the motto of the United States Marine Corps (often "Semper Fi" (IPA: sɛm pər ˈfаɪ) for short), this phrase has served as a slogan for many families and entities, in many countries, dating at least as far back as the 14th century. Within the groups below, users are listed in chronological order according to when they are believed to have adopted the motto; however, in many cases dates of adoption are not well established. always faithful; always loyal; motto of the United States Marine Corps.

Semper Fi is has nothing to do with the navy period. Semper Fi has to do with the United States Marines But yes semper fi does mean always faithful I dont think that the UK Navy has anything to do with it

It is not a Navy term. It is a term Used by the United States Marine Corps. While the Marines are technically under the Navy department, they are still a separate force. The term is a shortened latin term "Semper Fidelis" and means "Always Faithful".

It the US Marine Corps - translates to always faithful.

"Always faithful"

It does mean 'always faithful'. It is the motto of the US Marine Corps.

1. Semper Fi "The motto of the Marine Corps is Semper Fidelis, Latin for "always faithful" .Until 1871 it was "First to Fight", a motto that still applies. Through the years, Marines have shortened it to Semper Fi, and "Semper Fi, Mac" is the universal Marine Greeting."
