RMR can train in any of the SQ/AQs available to Regulars, I believe.
See the Det Clerk for information regarding availability of courses.
UWKF (Underwater Knife Fighter 2) is only available to JNCOs and above, there is an acqaint available from the RMFTS (Royal Marines Float Test Squadron) on a first come first served basis.
So you can train in any specialization no matter what your geographic location?
Hey thats great, I just thought specific specialties would be spread out to certain areas
By reactions above Im guessing the RM doesn't use the Javelin (FGM-148)??
I thought it replaced the Milan throughout the British forces. Then again, I have been out of the loop for quite some time, left army 8 years ago. Interested to know however.
Yep and also has Mne Alan Hinkes who is the first Brit to have climbed all of the worlds 8000m Peaks including Everest, K2 etc. Oh and he's an international mountain guide and all round good egg aswell!!
career recruit - got all of the hills I can manage just now. Live very near Penshaw Monument.
I like posting here m8 and hearing it from the horses mouth
When I joined the Army back in the mid 90's I was brainwashed with TV adverts featuring Frank. The bastard would ski down mountains and play footy and do loads of other great things that I fell for in my gullible youth.
Of course the army was nothing like Frank said it was. For years if I saw him Id have shot him!!
Hence like hearing it from the horses mouth. :afro:
