Never mind this post, who put the dogsh*t poll on here? What is all that about? Who cares?
The RMR has to constantly strive to meet the standard required by the Corps and it struggles to do this at times simply because of the Corps understated excellence, it's the maturity of the RM that has allowed the RMR to integrate in a way that all other services cannot contemplate and they are massively envious. It's because of this integration that the RMR is held in such high esteme in the Reserve community. This poll is nonesense, irrelevent and devisive, only failed regular nods who have passed out in the RMR can really answer this and that say's it all!
Forget the poll, RM Commando training is not for the faint hearted whether it's done at CTC as a regular or over week-ends as a reservist with a Ph1 and Ph2 course at CTC.....it's just extremely hard!
Why does the Corps not FTRS all RMR ranks? Surely going by the above poll RMR ranks will be well above the calibre of anyone who has "bimbled" through CTCRM on the long course, or maybe close (re-open for RMR courses obviously) CTC down and invest the cash saved into RMR training and load the Nods onto RMR courses. Just imagine the "super Corps" that it would create, Sounds like a plan to me.^_~
No dissent there & your ire is understood; but please note that only five trigger-happy RR contributors, from 14-05-07 to date, have attempted that Poll so just relax a little, eh?
