  2. Morning has I'm one of the few Pomme’s still awake I thought you might like a quick reply, have you read the forums on here ref, Royal marines, Newbie's etc.
    I take it you've looked on the RM web site, http://www.royalmarines.mod.uk/server/show/nav.6913, has I understand it if you’re a Commonwealth Citizen then you should be eligible, also try PM Ninja Stoker he seems to be the font of all knowledge ref joining.
     
  3. Hi James and welcome aboard, start the Recruitment ball rolling as soon as you can.
    As you're a Commonwealth citizen you're entitled to apply, it will probably just take a lot longer due to Security Checks etc, although your former service will stand you in good stead.
    Get started on compiling/ensuring all your paperwork is up to date and keep up the fitness routine, also start stocking up on jumpers and merino underwear, you know it makes sense.
    If you're able the sooner you can get to the UK on a Working Visa, for example, the better. It would probably speed things up if you were more Johnny on the Spot.
    As QQC stated the Ninja will be along shortly, you won't see him but he will pass on his Kata of Recruitment and be gone again before you know it...down to the pub most likely.
