Basic Training in 1985

Alright,

I passed Royal Marines basic training in 1985 and I'm researching the training of the time for a possible article. For the life of me can't remember the full chronological order of things covered, especially the Commando Phase. I can remember most and have researched what's going on nowadays, but can see it has altered.

If anyone can help, or knows of a link etc, I would be very grateful.

Regards,

Dubrifirkin

Try HERE. It shows it all, but not sure if you wanted a more detailed version.

Hope it helps, and goodluck with the article. Look forward to reading it.
 
Cheers,

I have seen this, but its the new 32 week format. I was looking for the old 30 week one. I know the infos out there somewhere.
