Alrite lads, i don't know about you but i like to read when i get time. I went out and bought these books the other day:

Royal Marines Commandos - John Parker
Commando - Chris Terrill
3 Commando - Ewen Southby-Tailyour

I have read a few chapters of the John Parker book and it is a detailled history of the Royal Marines, so if you need to top up your knowlegde for your interview then this is the book to read.

Also, will you be able to read at RT? What i mean by this is will there be enough spare time in the evenings for things like this, because i would love to start reading the Chris Terrill book when i start RT.

Cheers lads

I've just started reading John Parker's book,
found it a pretty interesting insight into the early days of the Royal Marines,
and I need to top up my knowledge so it's a good book.

Let us know what the other 2 are like.

The last book I read was Spearhead Assault by John Geddes,
he was a Para who fought in the Falklands,
good insite into what things were like from a soldier's point of view.
