I know i'm looking a bit far ahead here but what do you actually do when you've passed RT? like say you choose 45 cdo and you get in there - do you then get given a unit you'll be going on a tour with and then train with them all the time or is it different?

cheers

I must admit, theirs tons of information about PRMC and RT etc, but theirs never any information floating about which tell about what happens once you've passed all of your training. (What you do and what life's like etc.)

I know there are books, but you never see anything about it on websites and stuff.

Rogue may correct me, but from a bit of a research:

You'll get assigned to a troop, and train with them, and tend to stay there. But things like promotion and specialisation will mean that you move about, depending on where you're needed.

There must be more to it than that though. How much harder does the training get? What exercises do you do? How does the training differ?

There's loads of things that aren't really talked about.

As far as i'e seen, training in unit such as PT is less intense, and a bit is down to the individual, though Im not sure - might just not be remembering right.

Theres alot of weapon and tactics training, then obviously training deployments to norway as well as on board with ship familiarity etc

thats what i asked at prmc, and the answer was whatever the section commander wants to do, usualy wake up, have a phys session maybe a lecture or two, and usualy finished by lunch (2am) if there isnt anything on in the afternoon...

I know exactly what you are getting at.

There is so so much on the internet and in the media about training, training, training and what you can expect but it is so hard to find info on the day in a life of a Commando.

'At the end of the day' as a Marine you will always be in training, its just not as intense and condensed as your first 32 weeks thats all.

That's not really productive for the Corps though is it? Unless they are on a one of the many training packages.

Looking at it though they will be posted around various bases in England, always training and doing different packages (like Arctic warfare). They will do various exercises, with other branches of the Armed Forces also (like the ones on Salisbury plain).

If you do not deploy on military operations you will still need to lead your troop whether on training exercises or on camp. You will work with your Troop Sergeant and Company Commander to develop a robust and rewarding exercise programme to ensure your men remain highly trained.
I guess the fizz can depend on where you are at. Part of it is down to the individual to motivate themselves and maintain fitness levels.

But I think what we are looking for is the general, day to day activities of a Marine, not info on large scale unit deployments.
