    Exactly, we're not the pongos, so would be good to think that all prospective Royal Marines live up to the pride of the force and take care to give the best impression at all stages.

    If it's sunny tomorrow I might wear my cream linen suit for my POC brief...

    Grey is a bit dross in my opinion - go for black or navy, pin stripes = good :D

    Hmm, i was going to say grey. Blacks a bit sombre and I don't like Navy suits. Uk I hope to god that you were joking about having a cream linen suit....

    Of course I'm not! I bought it in Milan whilst on holiday :D

    Go for grey if you wish, I just don't like them!

    Maybe I will! POC in June so if it's hot and sunny...

    There're a couple of guys from here that are on the same POC so they can be testiment to my wearing of it...

    More likely, I'll try and blend in and be the "grey" man. Cream suit doesn't really do that greatly!

    Got to be worth more than that, surely?!

    I'm sure if everyone betted me a tenner I would, then set up justgiving/paypal details and donate it to RMA or H4H...

    (Still not sure if this is a good idea though!)

    Situation normal for many AFCOs, 25P says you wouldn't even see a raised eyebrow in an average inner-city AFCO. Odds are you'll just be directed to the RAF desk. [​IMG]

    You can do what you like with your hair before you join, likewise you can be covered in studs & piercings too as long as none of it constitutes a health risk/snagging hazard on PRMC.
