Can't resist. Isn't this a strange first post? No introduction, no reason why you should ask such a provocative question, no sense of the commando spirit...

Ok I'll nibble :)
AACC is just a series of fitness tests at the end of the day, there is no weeks and weeks of initial training followed by secondary training to imbibe the commando spirit. People that pass the AACC have the right to wear the Green Beret and Commando flash, but they have no right to expect or believe that they are as good as a Royal Marine.

They do perform a valuable role and all the lads I have worked with have been a good bunch! Sadly there are more and more "hats" joining the army commando units and they now seem to be out weighing the commando trained lads, which in my mind in a negative thing. Oh and dont get me started on the Devon and Doughnuts, oops sorry, 1 Rifles!

The only people I have ever heard use the term "hats" on a daily, regular, boring basis are thoses who have completed the AACC. Don't even go there with jumping out of aircraft dits. Whilst I have heard Royal Marines use it, it is far less frequent. Maybe they haven't got anything to prove.

Apologies if I offeneded, I only used the term because it was previously mentioned and I was to lazy to type non-commando trained ranks with my fat fingers.

Really TC, The Rifles not performing as promised? How surprised am I?..... Not very.

...'not performing as promised'.........still good enough to get killed doing their duty though. Imagine if that post was from someone in the Rifles referring to the Marines, you'd be a bit p.issed off given the job their doing right now and with good reason.
