    Webbing Weights

    They’re quite pricey and I’ve got a feeling the rubber will rot and breakaway after a while on bottom field however I really appreciate you taking the time to respond.

    Sounds sensible and mature, I feel like certain elements of my fitness have increased and others have just been maintained however I wouldn’t leave it too late, the version of you that passsed PRMC is the version they want in RT. Once again, well done on passing PRMC! It certainly isn’t for...

    Bottom Field During RT

    The SA80L85A2 weighs roughly 5kg doesn’t it? And I am fairly certain the A3 won’t be given to recruits for a few years.

    Am I too small to join the Royal Marines?

    I’m fairly certain anybody who is determined, committed, courageous enough and able to stay positive as well as remaining unselfish when #%*~ hits the fan, pushing on through the entirety of Recruit training to earn their green lid will have earned the respect of all those around, or serving...

    Bottom Field During RT
