little_sh1t said:How about instead of having just the Royal Marines Commandos, also just have marines.
The marines would be the lads who go for training but just can't reach that commando status, they just can't pass the commando tests or something. These would be the lads who could do all the 'undesirable' specialisations like driver, chef etc.
Those lads who could pass the test would then be the commandos and be the infantry in the units getting more experience in the GD role.
Isn't that how it's always been ?
