Well done chap on achieving green lid, a great achievement. I have to say that i'm very sad and still have my lid that i was presented back in 1992. Just a quick point because i seriously don't want to put a dampener on your achievements. OPSEC please mate! I'm not a moderator and am not trying to be but could you delete the names off your thread please.

I fully appreciate the reasons why you ask that, and fully expected it. I'd just like to risk it for an hour or so before removing them. Some people out there need to know just how good most of our instructors were. I work with Royal at the moment up in Faslane and was generally impressed anyway. Since being instructed by them I am, by and large, even more impressed.

Thanks mate!! Just thinking of them really, there are too many bad guys out there who would take delight in ruining their day. As for royal being impressive, yes it speaks for itself when you see how we/you shape said piece of green cloth onto head in direct comparison to the other units out there. Per Mare Per Terram and welcome to the family.

Many thanks to all who helped with the preparation for AACC 0306. I am now the proud bearer of a brand spankers Green Lid.

Thanks go out to the Chief Instructor for being a true legend throughout. Cheers too to 1 Sect Cpl. Truly awesome instructor through the whole course. Certainly a few guys owe a great deal to him. The course Sgt PTI - understands trained ranks and the difference between us and nods. Pity we didn't see you out on Wed night, best of luck in the future - just WHAT did that to your nose though?!

Cpl M (big lanky welsh git) - You might just need to take a long hard look at yourself and your teaching methods - nuff said?

To all the rest of the DS, CHEERS and Happy Christmas! (That includes you, 5 Sect Cpl, ya psycho!)
Well done matey, are you a marine or other service which has gone for the green lid?

Apologies

All Arms Commando Course, So this would be the substitute for the Paras?

Still think the SS Brigade should be brought back 8).
Substitute for the Paras? Not sure I understand. Completely different isn't it?!

A graduate or DS of the course can tell you more about the content but you'll need a draft to an RM unit ( for example 539 ASRM) with a need for stokers/ETs before you get the AACC as part of your PJT package. You can't just fancy doing it and slap in.

Thereafter, lots of phys, warry stuff, a worm omlette. The course is much shorter than RM Recruit Training (you are not being turned into a Marine) but the Commando Tests for the green lid are the same with same times required.

Any chance you ould tell me roughly what is involved in the AACC, as i myself am thinking of going for it sometime in the future!

cheers if you can!
I can send you a copy of the previous AACC timetable if you wish. It is not a secret and you can actually get it from OC or CI AACC. Send me email details and I'll forward it on to you.

We never had any RM wannabes at 539 when I was there ;) I think its only those carrying out a role where having done the course is required for operational reasons that can do it.

Absolutely.
While I applaud and respect anyone who does the course or has done in the past (its not something I could do), deep down I can't help but think that if you want a green lid, bloody transfer and do it properly!
I think its a shame that Royal has to rely on outsiders when part of the RM could be expanded to take on all these jobs that are "farmed out".
Just an opinion :)
