Lets be honest now, the Royal Marines don't really see as much action as the army. That's why I'm joining the Marines, cos I've had 14 years of firefights, violence and death on the streets of Manchester in gang warfare. It's time for a break for me.

Anyway, what are your opinions on 1 Rifles being Commando trained troops to help you guys out? Do you think these new army commandos are going to be the bomb or do you think it's an insult?

What exactly does "commando role" mean anyway. Is it just the same as "light role"?

I still have my dagger from telic 1 .CO did stop us from wearing it. However every RM I have met since has without exception shaken my hand and said we should wear that dagger with pride .Looking forward to being part of 3 CDO next year on HERRICK 9.QDG (THE WELSH CAVALRY)

Yep, we were the Lynx and Gaz jocks. Didn't have a chat on Telic 8 as I only did OpTelic. Stick with Dobbin, it earned a lot of respect. :thumright:
