Does anyone know if existing RNR on the trained strength can go along to a RMR centre and go for the commando course training assuming they're up to speed on the phys?
Is it not still the case that RM do not have Docs they come from the RN if this is the case I assume that the same would apply to RMRstinkfire9816 said:Well on this one I know that it has happened in the past. A Lt Commander in the RNR was also a chest surgeon. He wanted to pass the Cdo Cse and join 3 Cdo on ops. He was an all right lad, but the fizz took its toll. I still think he is in the RNR.
As I understand it, he was planning to transfer to the RMR, but was told the All Arms course wasn't good enough and had to do the the full course. He got seriously injured late on in the course and as he was still RNR it was felt better that he should transfer back. Part of the reason is maybe that he was in his 40s.stinkfire9816 said:Part timer to me that seems pants....if you earn the lid it you wear it!!! Again up north we have a few lads who are ex 7 Battery. No worries joining the RMR. So I wonder why jolly jack tar didn't get the same crack of the whip?
Bloody Hell, didn't want to drop anyone in it. I just wanted to make the point that RNR have undertaken RMR training, but the key point was that he'd done the All Arms course (therefore RM training) before. I didn't want to raise a storm as to whether the All Arms course was good enough to serve in the RM/RMR (rather than attached to) or not.stinkfire9816 said:Part Timer, that still smells of some PSI bull s**t!! How can anyone say that the ALL ARMS isn't good enough? I mean those lads get beasted til their eyes bleed! So if that where something that went across he board then all the ex regulars pushing forty would not be allowed to join the RMR. How much skills and experience would we lose....lots!!!! If anyone has got actual details of this happening then get in touch, I will pass it on up the pay chain. Think that SO2/SO1 RMR may well have a take on this>
If you are a regular and join the RMR you join qualified and with the rank you had.Scottish_Kiwi said:Yeh,
I thought as long as you passed the commando course (all arms, reserve, regulars) you got your lid and it stuck with you no matter where you ended up.
Alright mate,ExBootneckPW1 said:If you are a rubber dagger you have to complete training again...a lad in my grot was a RMR who had passed the Cse but still had his nod hat for training.
