Hi, I'm a south african lad currently in the process of applying to the Royal Marines. But I've heard and read about the south african bill relating to mercenary activites and how it applies to other lands military services. I was hoping a poster here might be able to provide me with some more information. From what I've read, I'll basically have to relinquish my south african citizenship if i'd like to join, which not a problem for me personally, may be a problem because I haven't fully qualified for british citizenship yet. Is this the case? Has there been progress between the MoD and the SA government with regards to this issue? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
