Need to Get in there

#1
I know south africa is not one of your favorite places. Neither is it mine.
I have wanted to join the royal marines. and quite impossible due to where i live. And i wont join the forces here, the quality of people and services are third world.
Has anyone got ideas.

Shadow defence secretary Liam Fox said: “There are problems looming. South Africa is already planning a new law — that would deprive us of more than 800 soldiers in one fell swoop. It’s vital that we do more to recruit and retain enough soldiers from Britain.â€
OK, it's the Sun but even they can't invent what Foxie says. My worry would be the status of SA Nationals already serving overseas if they go through with this.

I think the government have actually spotted this one and have been talking to the SA government about it. To be fair the purpose of the law was not to deny us recruits but to make it easy to pursue mercenaries

Nutty, Surely the denizens of the British Enclave of Mazarron should be eligible to join up too! Perhaps Elizabeth II should pay a State Visit en route to Gibraltar! ;)

i called the call center after i posted this topic. The lady i spoke to said they take commonwealth applicants, but due to the sa government, they cant run a background check on people that have been here for 3 years.
Then she went on to tell me that there is a loop hole. That if by some chance there was a recruit already serving in the Marines, to vouch for me i would get in. But chances are slim that a person that doesnt even know me will vouch for me. I found that odd. But who knows.
