Telegraph: "Am I Man Enough For The Marines?"

i can play the double bass to grade three -

i believe they teach you the pink oboe during week two.

also i know a bit about flexing in front of mirrors

hold on a minute though - no womens clothes

back to wafu hotels for me

bottom field my arse - they should see the field at the bottom of my garden - its big and covered in weeds and if i rub my beret into the grass it takes on a green tinge

edited once for extra sarcasm

I loved this quote; “If you can’t deal with seeing another man naked, you shouldn’t be in the Royal Marines,†says Major Rawles

Surely edited once for extra sexual insecurity thinly disguised as humour. :roll:
Just remember as a WAFU you're only one step up above the RAF in most peoples eyes. :twisted:

The quote of the piece must be.....
“If you can’t deal with seeing another man naked, you shouldn’t be in the Royal Marines,†says Major Rawles. 8O

Well if you can fit a couple of Royals on the outside with a bit of bungee cord surely this could be an option. :? :wink:

Yet not one mention of Marines milling with roll mats. You would think these journos would get it right.

I did chuckle a little at this bit:

I’m assigned my own PTI, Sgt Rob Driscoll. “We don’t feel the need to shout here,†Major Rawles assures me, just as a PTI yells in a nearby recruit’s face to “----ing sort his ----ing ---- outâ€.

I rather liked the quote:

Daily Telegraph said:

Reminds me of my last visit to CTC in November - had a chat with some of the Recruits over lunch & asked "What would you say is the biggest surprise in Recruit Training?"

Came back the reply in a cracking Brummie twang: "I never realised I would be shouted at so much". :wink:

Don't know what others feel / recall but shouting was good, it's when the shouting stopped you the concern state went up...

Yup. Shouting in the Army was the warm up. Silence usually preceded some sort of physical violence.
