    Back into the swing of things

    Thank you @Chelonian. My diet had included two cans of Coca-Cola a day, pork pie and a bacon sandwich in the morning; as well as an abundance of god-awful sugary stuff (deep fried cream eggs, anyone?) As of now, the've all been cut out; and going to start a slow and steady build-up to the...

    Thank you, mate. From to-morrow, I am going to see how many push-ups I can do; as well as how far I can run (though, I am not expecting miracles!). Currently 6ft and weigh around 18st 10ibs.

    Back into the swing of things

    Hi all, Originally applied to join in 2017. Passed my recruit test, eye test and security clearance. New job and all that forced me to put my application on the back burner. Now, at the 'old' age of 30 and 5 months, I've reapplied. Am I going to have to go through the application/recurit test...

    Long time no see

    Hi there, all I had applied to join the RMR back last year, but due to personal 'problems' (new job, house move et cetera) I had to put my application on hold. I wish now to restart it but, was wondering how I go about it? Do I just ring up my AFCO and that's that or do I have to use the new...

    A laugh

    Hi all, Saw this on Twitter and it made me laugh Where in the devil would an RAF recruitment van go to have such a thing written on it?

    Should I join the Royal Marines?

    Ditto here. Got a few degrees, work in academia etc., but that little voice in the back of head is telling me 'go and join before it's too late' so that's exactly what I'm doing

    Changing mind from reserve to regular

    Thank you for the advice. I’ve no kids, or mortgage. I’ve got a girlfriend but she’s understanding so that should be okay. I think, personally, I could adopt to the nuances of basic training; as it’s something I’ve wanted to pursue for years however, I decided to take a full education at...

    I agree with everything you say here, mate. And I am someone who opposes same sex marriage on religious grounds (might be antithetical for me to be religious, considering I’m a scientist but still) ; yet, we are afraid to voice our opinions due to the Left and other ‘progressives’ who wish to...

    Flying Boot neck

    I too was impressed at the precision. And when he levitated from the pool across to the wall. The fact he had some sort of individual caravan was also pretty amazing. Like he was a secret weapon ready to be unleashed. I so hope this is turned into an advert of some sort ?

    I liked the way he had his own special caravan to go into:) A new RM advert perhaps? Coming in on jet packs. That would be utterly, utterly awesome; sans the saluting! Ha

    Rubbish propaganda that seeks to undermine masculinity. Instead of focusing on the perceived ‘negatives’ of masculinity; why not focus on the positives of it but alas, that’s not the Ray the RadFems and leftie culture works. But there we go.
