Woooot just got my application in today!, Eventually got the ball rolling!. Cant wait to hear back from them now. I Was originally said i was going to join when im 18 but while out running today i decided that i was going to get my application in today and thats excally what ive done!. Theres a hell of a long way to go before i can even think about being on the battlefield but im still excited that ive finally got it all started!.

How long does it normally take for a reply after sending the application and what comes next after the reply?

Got mine after 10 days. Busy as crap down here apparantly at the moment and they are fully booked up through till september (managed to get my test on the 9th though).

Had a chat with a recruiter today (oddly enough mate of a mate..) and he was just explaining about how the whole system works and about all the cloth heads who come in who they dont want. Such as people saying they want to join the marines to kill things haha

Do not under estimate that damn test mate!

I did mine today, didn't bother swottin' up for it because i'm a ded clever me and only retards fail it....Big mistake!...still passed, though I sweated a tad!

Freakin heck you have to work fast through it! If you have to stop and think you're taking too much time!

I was chatting to a guy who had passed his officer tests and stuff, he went to a para aquaint before the marines to see which one he prefered.

Apparantly they had to stand up and say why they wanted to join the paras and the common answer was 'I *text deleted* ice someone and not get dun fer it' which was met with a whoop, holla and a round of applause. Hence he went Royal!
