Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

  1. Hi everyone,
    Im thinking of joining the royal marines after I've finished college (july 14) haven't decided whether to go officer or commando yet.
    At the minute im not the biggest of people so am trying to bulk up doing a simple 5x5 program.
    Was wondering if anyone out there can give me any tips on how to prepare best, specific training programs etc

    Any help is really appreciated

    Have to say in this instance I do agree with Finks (Help, what's happening to me?!) and confirm what rookierambo states - crap terminology on the RN website & RM Recruitment on Facebook also.

    The RN website seems to confuse the Commando qualification with rank and wrongly, and frequently, differentiates between RM Other Ranks and Royal Marines Officers by referring to Other Rank Royal Marines Commandos as "Commandos" instead of Royal Marines and Royal Marines Commando Officers as "Royal Marines Officers".

  10. Yes I was a tad brusque and apologise unreservedly to the young want to be Royal.

    N_S I concur; crap.
