:?: I wonder if anyone can tell me how I verify that someone claiming to be a RM officer, but who seems highly unlikely to be so, is fro real. This chap is using his clai to gain the trust of a freind but, his story doesn't hold-up. I don't want to use his claimed name, but he clams to be a Lt Col in charge of Yankee troop!!, and recently toured in Afgahnistan. But I think he's an imposter, trying it on. Any pointers would help. Do the RM have 'troops', rather than platoons?, and surely a Lt Col would be commadnding a Commando?
