Joining the Royal Marines Reserve

yep if and when they let me in i would hope id miss none, RMR would come first over everything, just wondered what the deal was with learning stuff that would have been taught on that weekend, maybe you are allowed to go join up with an RMR unit elsewhere to catch up if possible?

glad its going well anyway

Alright,

I am currently an RMR Scotland Recruit (Edin Det) in Phase 2 of training, if anyone has any questions about training, feel free to ask.

Does anybody know if Greenock Detachment runs drill nights? I've applied to join the RMR and passed my medical and PJFT but I've had no info from RMR Scotland so far. I drive past the place quite alot but there doesn't seem to be much activity (which is odd since it is co-located with the coastguard and HMS Dalriada). The only reason I know they're there is because of the signs on the fence and the internet.lol I just figured that they don't have the numbers and anybody from Greenock just travels up to Glasgow. Does anybody have any information on this?

No, Greenock is a spur from Glasgow Detachment and specialises in training and provision of coxwains for Rigid Raiders etc. Drill Nights would be conducted for you at Glasgow which is co-located with HQ RMR Scotland. I can arrange an informal chat with a current member who can give you all the info you require. Check you personal messages for my contact details.

Cold and wet this is excellent information, keep it coming! What do you do on your average drill night? Not just 'phys' what kind (bleep tests, squaded runs?).

sorry guys, no more info on training is gonna appear here. Most of you probably saw Sgt Allens posts on here, which were by the way, directed at me. I've had a little chat with the training staff, who don't think i can judge what and what isnt sensitive information (a fair point), and the result of that is that so i don't let something slip that i shouldn't, no more details of my training are gonna be posted here. I'll gladly give advice (for what it's worth) to people, but what happens on drill nights and training weekends is gonna stay all hushed up. No more updates of what i do on weekends.

I am however compiling a bit of a diary of what i go through on training.. which is basically just my RMR updates but a wee bit more detailed, and private for now. At the end of training, if and when i pass out (no assumptions i definately will, but i do intend to) my "diaries" are going to be vetted by people with clearances that know what they're doing, and after a whole lot of editing, i may be able to post the whole thing up here, or publish it somehow for the world to see.

so, sorry to all the people wanting to know more. you'll get the info eventually, but it may be another ooo, 16/17 months or so.
Gonna be an interseting training weekend for you then after easter leave? Would have loved to have heard that little chat and look forward to reading about it in 18 months
