Can the trained ranks on here share with us what their memories are from that first day in a unit after training. What was it like? What actually happens? How did more experienced commandos treat you etc? Did training prepare you fully for it?
Is this gender segregated? I know more and more females are joining training, so Im hoping that soon there will be females in the corps so I am just wondering how it will work when that happens. Will they build a new block for women or will it be the same as men?It’s usually 4-6 man grots. Get your own cabin at 43 though.
Couldn’t tell you mate. Obviously a lass is yet to pass out of training. But I would imagine they would be in the same block but just separate rooms. That’s how it works on ctc anyway.
Thanks for the heads up. Also I was watching commando school and you had to be naked while in a foundation block. I don't want to sound self conscious but that would be a bit unusual to stand but naked in a room full of lads. And also they where taught how to shower by a naked bloke and I was wondering weather we would have to do that as well or if there would be someone specifically to teach the females.Couldn’t tell you mate.

With the first day thing. How long on average are you the new kid. I mean with CTC filled to the gills I’m sure there are pass outs what, every few weeks? Surely new marines arrive every couple of weeks?
