So you want to be a Royal Marine?

WTF is this! I came for help but instead had you childish lot hurling so much stale crap at my post.

Is there anyone in the RM who can help or are you all just unhelpful spam whores?

Hello chaps.

Just need some information and help on joining and please don't be harsh as I know tabbing roughneck types can be a little passive to us Cnut types.

I would like to become an officer in the Royal Marine Commando's in 42 Commando (I think) but ask for guidance along a realistic path. In fact I am not sure what rank I may be able to reach or witch force within the Royal Marines would suit me.

So if anyone can answer all of my queries and give me some undoubted knowledge on a career path tailored for me it would be a huge boost for me. My careers office is unable to assist as they are currently moving to another site.

If you have a good perusal at some of the old threads throughout this site you will find ample information regarding what your looking for. I dont treally know much about YO training mate, only that you will need to be highly switched on, fitter than the average nob because you will need to run the CDO pass out tests faster, and will need a sound knowledge of the workings, structure of the corps and its current commitments. Ignore the sniping from others, this is a site where taking the piss comes as standard mate. Oh and in the corps we yomp, the army tab if indeed that was what you were referring to. :lol:

Im thinking of joining the royal marines. Im wondering weather you can stay in your commando unit and turn down the specialist jobs. So my question is do you have a choice?

Complete sense of humour failure. rejected as unsuitable for RM officer. Suggest you try Blues and Royals.

We're mainly childish and unhelpful spam whores who delight in hurling stale crap. There are odd ones like Nutty_Bag who will offer sound and reasonable advice. When you've finished your little tantrum and mummy has put teddy back in your crib....start asking.

Oh....any chance of making that Union Flag a little bigger........can't quite see it.
 
Why does my signature intimidate you?

Anyway lads, I am not trying to be a sour ass but expected some real Royal Marines to answer, not some turnip answer that looked like a rejecting reply.

But on a serious note, is nutty_bag the only one who acts serious to people in need? Is this forum for continuous jokes?

Spent some time in the chatroom with Nutty Bag and a few others tonight talking with one of 3rd Commando Brigade in Lashk Ghar in Afghanistan. He sent some photographs of his section, all with beards, standing around a LWB with a 50 cal mounted on top; just back from a 3 week patrol and surprised to hear that Saddam had been lynched. The boys looked like the LRDG but they are good in good spirits and it was great to talk with them.

Rosy has the pics and hopefully she will be able to post them.

Obviously my plan for this thread hasn't worked very well. The idea was to stop repeated threads being created asking the same questions and provide useful info for potential recruits. This one has just developed into an unhelpful post fest.

It doesn't bother me, most plans change when the first shot is fired. I'll unsticky it and it can go alongside the others.
