What does civilian life look like for Royal Marine Commandos (RMC)? I've looked up some videos (found some on the Parachute Regiment) and it looked rather grim but honestly not all bad - I take that work prospects aren't any better here, similar to any infantry regiment, but the caveat is you can choose to specialise unlike in the Paras or any other combat oriented role, unless I'm mistaken. My questions are: - Once you've specialised I take it you are soldier second, specialisation first? Or does it vary depending on deployment? - I've found a few specialisation and one that appeals to me is "Mountain Leader". I don't know much about this beyond the obvious because there isn't much information I can find but regardless this is the one that appeals me the most. I figure that if I'm lucky, I can come out at some point and work either independently or for a company to guide people up mountains or something. I don't know I'm just seriously trying to think of my future. - I want to spend the majority of my time as an infantry unit. Can I wait to specialise down the line provided I pass the commando course? Finally as a bonus question but kind of a silly one - do you get to keep all your RMC uniform? Any weapons? Same for the Parachute Regiment (I prefer RMC due to the specialisation but I think paras has them beat in fashion haha, I'll do a poll for fun).
