Could He Be SBS

#1
Just nipped over from ARRSE to ask a question I posted awhile ago but could'nt get back to see any answer.

Could a sailor, not marine, join SBS.? He claimd his uncle was one such and a group had been helcoptered in and out for funeral. Must have been youngest or oldest SBS in service going age groups at funeral.

Short answer: Yes it is possible for an RN sailor to become full time SBS. Used to be pretty rare when most if not all swimmers were RM. These days as selection has become a little more open and formalised route, could be, but as mentioned in the other thread the helo trip and the blabbing are walt alerts. Reeks like a bad newspaper story.
Only <certain member of royalty> got to treat his wokka like a personal weekend 'mobile........

Yes you can… the gentlemen from Hamworthy put an advert in Navy News back in 2002 that was inviting applications from anyone in the RN who thought they were suitably qualified.

RN Commandos aren't transferred to the RM, they're qualified to serve in 3Cdo as RN personnel, in the same way that RE and RA don't change service when serving in the Bde.

Oh really? Pray enlighten me, are you saying some stoker who's got his green lid will glide smoothly into a rifle company?
