Kings Passout Parade

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. When practicing the drill for your passing out parade, is it all done throughout your time at Lympstone Commando or during the week between the final Commando test and the passing out parade?

    Week 32. After passing all tests.

    Many Royal Marines refer to the Kings Squad pass out week as the fifth Commando Test.

    Basic drill is taught during recruit training, but not at pass-out level.

    If you check-out minute 00:30 to about 01:15, we can see why Royal needs to be able to count :)

    If the original poster hasn't found out for himself yet drill is undertaken throughout basic training. More so early on as your time as a Nod. You get to march up and down, march backwards and forwards , march in circles, march slowly, march loudly, march until you really cant be fucked to march any more. Then it drops off and you don't really do much drill shit then you do your commando course and become the Kings squad, then you get to march up and down, march slowly, march cleverly. march to music. Yay for marching. Then You get to hear the magical words...."Royal Marines, to your duties, quick, March" You then march to "A life on the ocean wave". After this you get to a unit and mostly just bimble.
