An excellent reference for the history & origins of the British Commandos, covering the later formation of the Special Air Service, Special Boat Squadron & Parachute Regiment from the British Commando Forces can be found here on Wikipedia.

As with all things on wiki, you may need to verify certain items, but it gives a very good insight into the origins of the Commandos.

What's the geometrical meaning of the central extension of the algebra
of diffeomorphisms of the circle?

let f(x) be a function defined on the positive integers such that:

f(x) = x/2 if x is even
f(x) = (3*x+1)/2 if x is odd

then the conjecture is: iterates of f(x) will eventually reach 1 for any initial value of x, :rock:

geometry is shapes and you have asked what the geometrical meaning is, you can say "whats the meaning of geometry", but you cant say whats the geometrical meaning, it doesnt make sense, a central extension is just an extension in the centre, but of what? you fail to state what central extension it is again not making sense, algebra is a mathamatical equation which would be impossible to solve without answers or figures to the first half of the question, and the word diffeomorphisms doesnt exist. please dont write questions for the psychometric test or the interview. *text deleted*

haha! you horrible sods! poor boy is asking a serious question, and you lot are terrorising him!

well mate. there all fairly basic... they will ask you all manner of questions on weapons, and transport, and equipment, so start learning... questions such as.. what is load capacity of a landing craft ect... what is a javalin? what is bowman? calibre of the SA80 rifle?and so on.....

they will also explore your own personal reasons as to why you want to join the marines.. so really give it a good think over....

most likely they will ask you about your thoughts on killing another, and potentially being killed yourself....

they may ask you to give an example of when you were in a position of responsiblilty or an organisational role, also whether you captained any sports teams and so on... hobbies ect...

overall, just make sure your equipment, weaponry and transport knowledge is up. oooh, and while i think about it... knowledge of the corps.... history, current operations, the different branches of the corps, ie 40,42,45, 29 battery, 59 assault, and 20 commando engineers.. i think these are the right ones, but my interview was a few months back and i cant remember everything!

and finally... per mare per tarram.. by land and sea. the marines moto!


good luck fella, and get revising!

mike
