Hoping to become an RM Rupert

As the title states, I'm looking to apply to the Corps as an Officer.

I had a "friend" that was telling me stories of when he was serving long ago and he even gave me a ton of 'advice' however we recently discovered he is a walt, so I'm not too confident in the things he told me.

Was just wondering if any of you lads, regardless if you were/are GD or an Officer, have any advice?

Side note; most of my knowlege is of the PONGOs as RM information is quite difficult to come by as a civvie.

Cheers in advance!

There is a plethora of information on the corp. If you are particularly resilient in your Google skills there are at least 3 documentaries about the training. As far as I know the training is identical (physically).

Edited for being a spelling mong.

Read the question, he wants to join as an hoccifer so rightly expects everything to be done by others for him.
Would have made an excellent occifer in the 60s but I think more is expected of the current generation :)

In my own defense, when I asked:

I was more asking for any first hand advice or dits about getting on in POC/CTC.

I've never heard a RM Officer described as a "Rupert". Least of all by those aiming to pass POC...
I was simply trying to come across as "one of the lads", shan't happen again.

One of the lads? I sense that the site demographic is not biased towards ORs and Junior Ratings and anyway, ‘them and us’ derogatory terminology ( however Pongo ) is discouraged.
