transferring from RN to RM after phase 2

#1
Alright lads, i looked for a thread on this but couldn't find one soooo here i am.
I finish my phase 2 training in a months time, the thing is, i always wanted to be im the RM, it was what i originally applied for but due to failing my mile and a half return i got persuaded to join the mob but ended up getting a specialisation i didn't want. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about transferring, how to go about it and if anyone has done it, cheers lads

Speak to your DO.
It has been done before...but not often.
The needs of the service come first so now that you are required to complete a ROS for the training that you have received you might find that a difficult hurdle to surmount.
You need to be really really fit, particularly upper body. I think the PTIs can advise with this. You need to prove that you are fit before you can transfer, not just RN fit, but RM fit. You might be able to get a visit or acquaintance type thing to find out more.
Speak to your DO.

I may be slow on the uptake but did you write you failed the 1 1/2 mile ? Your currently serving ? And you think CTC is a realistic option ?

You could try stand up as a career.... unless someone 'persuades' you into another career you didn't want

I'm off for a laydown, my ribs hurt

Bullshit.

How many times did you fail the PJFT before being told to consider a variety of less physically demanding roles which you were eligible for?

Generally, since the RN has invested a few £1000 training someone to do the job they chose to do, they'll usually expect the individual to complete their 30 months return of service before entertaining an application for a branch transfer
