I do despair. You can join the Royal Marines in about six weeks if you are fit enough from the outset. Problem is most applicants aren't and the knock-on effect is we waste a load of money training them to be a matelot, only for them to later want to transfer.

I'm RNR, my great uncle was in the RN, my grandfather on my dads side was in the Missions to Seafarers and my great grandfather on my mums side was in RNVR during WW1.

The daft thing is in knew nothing of any of this when I joined up. Strange how things turned out.

Family history has it, that my paternal great great grandfather and his brother were pressed from the small boat they were fishing for herring from.Their two young sons being left aboard to, to bring the boat ashore. With the money the got on release they bought a small piece of land which belongs to my cousin to this day.

As long as the story satisfied the Constabulary it doesn't matter where the money came from.
