Hi Mick,

I'm 28 and down for prmc in 2 weeks. My mate won the kings badge at 32'ish.

The Marines are a little different from other branches in regards they get a lot higher percentage of over 25 applicants. I personally don't know of any other forces branch that gets so many mature applicants.

Get yourself on mate, you might be the oldest on your course but you won't be by much.

All the best
GreyWing

Hiya Mick, welcome.

The advantage you have over the younger guys is the endurance factor. They have the advantage in sprints & recover quicker from injury.

The best of luck to you.
