Custodimus semper "We always guard"

Custodimus omnes "We guard everyone"

Custodimus contra internecioni "We guard against massacres"

Semper contra internecioni "Ever against massacre"

Semper, omnes "Always, everyone"
Semper, omnes is pretty cool.

How about nunquam aliud ("never another"), for the Navy.

Seeing that "aliud" is a legal term around here, it makes me wince a bit, but that aside, it does have a certain kick.

I like that one. It evokes one of the shortest and grandest of military mottoes: Ubique "Everywhere", used by the Royal Engineers, as well as Semper Fidelis (USMC).

And depending on the language it also sounds like:

"Always Man"

Which is cool in an enduring whatever comes at you and carrying on sort of thing.

Also by the Royal Artillery. It started as a battle honour.

"Non inimicus praeterquam morte"? Which should be "No Enemy Except Death"

[Mihi] non inimicus praeterquam stragem would be [I have] "no enemy except slaughter", I think.
