I have a stock of RM recruitment prints made in the 90's when my lad was in 42 Commando at Lympstone. While based in Devon he kept the camp shop supplied with stock,and subsequently the shop requested them direct from me. The staff rota changed and eventually the contact was lost, as a result I still have copies which I'm happy to post.
There is a second print made for RM 'M Squad' also available, and in addition to those I have some signed and numbered, limited edition prints made especially for members of a 'special group' operating at around the same time.
RM recruitment print - actual image size 55.5cm x 72.2cm: £10
RM 'M Squad' print - 57.7cm x 74.6cm: £10
'Special group' signed and numbered - 44.5cm x 55.9cm: £25
£6 per order would be required for p&p costs, but one charge will cover up to three sent together.
Please private message me if you are interested.

Just a quick plug for those of you with either of the above, mentioned in the thread title.
This closed group is a very supportive and active group of individuals who are pretty much pivotal to your achieving your quest in becoming Royal Marines Commando Officers or Other Ranks. You may not realise it yet, but these people are with you every step of the way and their support can be the difference between success or failure no matter how well you may think you are prepared.
Whilst it is appreciated few realise how vital support from home actually is and how critical it can be, I'd very much urge you to encourage your parents or partners to join this group either now or after passing POC or PRMC.
For those with parents or partners who are not particularly interested or supportive of your application, this group is very much inclusive of those people and we are more than happy to give a straight-talking run-down on the trials and tribulations faced by families and partners during recruit training and beyond.
You know it makes sense.
