    Returning from leave - Thinking of wrapping? Don't!

    I hate being home, just depends on the circumstances and your desire to be there. Remembering why you are there and what you aim to achieve.

    42 Cdo in Gibraltar.

    @rkec if you hadn’t realised the moment you attest to queen and country they’ve got you obviously after foundation and before week 26 if I’m correct in thinking. You don’t get to make the choices whether or not boarding a vessel or what the implications are, that is down to the highest and...

    I’m on your RT date mate inbox if you feel like it, just adhere to the list and in foundation you get a list of kit to pick up in Exeter as some issues items aren’t up to scratch and some things to make life easier, don’t flap. Take more money than is stated I blew through my 200 the first time...

    Specialist Qualification - getting pinged

    That is the “underlying issue” most forget you sign the dotted line, we’ve got you after 6 months. Ponder your thoughts now and square them away. Most profit and some do not, like any work place in the world the smallest voices usually shout the loudest and then the biggest will follow suit...

    Specialist Qualification - getting pinged

    Can’t lie this is the most informative bit of information I could hope to read. Under no illusions that there are parts to the RM that aren’t desirable, but I’d still love to be a part of it none the less. My background before this has been *text deleted* job after *text deleted* job, and lowest point been a...

    Commando tattoos

    It’s a small case of, if you dare poke the bear; expect harsh consequences. Moral of the story do as you will at your own risk for the small reward of a hoofing tattoo.

    PVRed from the royal navy

    @pvrmoron Just get in touch with your AFCO, explain your reasoning and desires for RM and they’ll tell you to apply. Once done so at some point I imagine they’ll look into how long it’ll take for time to elapse or (don’t quote me but this might be just a thought, do not take as gospel)...

    Commando tattoos

    Rule of thumb, give it a few years in then get one. Wouldn’t seem appropriate after a month in unit and green lid just acquired.

    Royal Marine Career

    A service life is what you make of it, you could get *text deleted* draftings in the Para’s, only as nothing is going on doesn’t mean you can’t personally develop yourself. Being at 43 in spare time you can crack on with open uni given it’s a 2 year ping at least if memory serves me right, don’t quote...

    Bewildered

    @Nella94 That’s good news, they are taking it seriously and given it a proper evaluation to determine a outcome. Obviously it’ll be handled with care and weighing out all the options and obstacles your predicament meets.

    Bewildered

    Drop your hours to a minimum you can afford the basics, minimise time with the misses, focus on good form and quality exercise and square away your medical, you can be annoying and push it along. Average joes are slow; a good swift quick should see them quicken paces. We’re the same age and I...
