What's it like to be a Royal Marine Commando?

:hello2:

Hi, first of all, sorry if this is the wrong forum.


I've always looked up to the marines and always admired them, along with the SAS.

I just wanted to ask you Royal Marines, what's it like to be one?

What type of operations do you do? What's it like living in the desert? How do you feel when shooting at someone? Whats the food like, lol?

Do you ever fear of being KIA or loosing limbs :sad10: ?

I've read the Marine website, but I'd thought I'd ask the actual commandos themselves. From their personal experiences.

I'm also thinking of joinning the marines when I'm older. :)

Just read the "Don't talk about operations" in the "Free beer and kebabs" topic, so never mind about that.

I do mind the fact I missed out on a free kebab. :(

You just need to remember that in the Royal Navy there are two kinds of marines; Submarines and Royal Marines.

They both carry sailors :thumright:

Only after the first 30 miles carrying a very fat PO Stoker :bball: :bball:
 
Excuse me - the PO Stoker is not fat at all! He has recently lost a stone in weight.

However, I think his ovvies are pretty heavy, due to the build up of oils, deisel and other fluids!

He's just clocked in at being 2'6" too short for his weight! :thumright:

If I want to be a marine I need to change my fitness :/

Which is why I'm using the exercise program recommended on the Royal Marine website to drop the weight lol :p

Change your standard of fitness to high standard, get used to being cold & wet, learn not to complain! the training is very hard, the training team will not like you, but most of all if you want do it!

Cut out a lot of bad food in my diet, and cut down my meal portions. Kinda scrwed at the moment though, starting at easter and getting 5 easter eggs! :p

I do 30-40minutes of bike exercising a day.

Hopefully I'd of made a lot of progress in a few months. :thumright:

Hi Sitmus and welcome to RR.
Firstly if you want to join the Royal Marines you must develop your levels of commitment and endurance, you should do this by sending those Easter Eggs to me. The cost of postage will prove you're worthy and then I shall post a vid of me eating them which you'll have to endure.
Alternately, it sounds as though the PO Stoker is in need of a break from Rosies Rabbit Food Wonder Diet, so you could send him a few to cheer/fatten him up.
He also seems to be decorating his Overalls with fluids not of a Naval nature, they seem to come from the genital region. Rosie has obviously been neglecting her Drainage Party duties Tut, Tut.
Good luck.
