alrite mate, good on you for considering the RM, its a long hard road ahead of you.

there is a fair bit of usefull info on the Navy website www.royalnavy.mod.uk with a link to the Royal Marines, and there are also lots of other people who have started threads on this issue, so have a look back over previous posts.

www.militaryforums.co.uk also has some usefull info on the physical aspect of training, but allways remember Rum Ration is where the best info can be found!

Tom: You seem to be doing fine. Obviously there's always room for improvement but being a bootneck is about giving 100% all the time. That's what's important.

You're on the right lines it would seem. Keep it up and if you're determined enough to make the grade, you'll do it.
