Im trying to encourage my nephew to join the Royal Marines when he leaves school and in the interim to join the Marine Cadets. He was swaying toward the Army (first mistake) and joined the Army Cadets - It was depressing to say the least and all they ever done was drill. (no phys, field weekends or decent lessons)
Needless to say hes left and has now been put off the Forces. I am still hopeful however and am trying to show him that the Corps is the way to go.
Can anyone give me a heads up on what the RM Cadets are like, what you do at weekends and also where the nearest Det is to me (Edinburgh)
