Telegraph: "10 Things No One Tells You Before You Join The Royal Marines"

Discussion in 'The Corps' started by soleil, Mar 18, 2014.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Interesting and amusing but 'sweating like a cheap beef salad' - eh?
  2. Hang on a minute...

    "350th anniversary of the Royal Marines, formed in 1755".

    Fail in both history and maths there then.

    "The Corps of Royal Marines, the infantry land fighting element of the United Kingdom's Royal Navy, was formed as part of the Naval Service in 1755. However, it can trace its origins back as far as 1664, when English soldiers first went to sea to fight the Dutch."

  5. "Mark Time" what a great pseudonym

    Ikea has 3 standards of crappiness, shite, shit and shitty. You pay pennies for the lower cheap shite range. A pound or two for the shit range and well ripped off for the shitty top of the range crap with good ideas. All this with a picture of some Swedish interior designer laughing at you as you hand over your credit card.

    I do like their hotdogs, meatballs and strawberry tarts.
  12. Yes Woody I'm aware of that, but isn't it generally accepted that the 'birth' of the corps is considered to be 1664? That ties in with the 350th anniversay as well.

    I stand correction on this, but think I've got it right.

    I think he missed what both of us were saying Guzz.
  14. You should turn the stool the other way up :)
  15. Then you could enjoy the experience with friends.
  16. If the thought of the threesome gives her a wide on, she wont be sharing the stool with anyone. No matter which way up it is
  17. Apparently, that is the most successful chat-up line in a gay bar.

    "Can I push in your stool?"
