ok, straight to the point im 100% certain i want to be a royal marine but im unsure as to which route to take. Ive herd people say that officers rarley need to use their rifle and that its a lonley job being being an officer and they dont experience the camraderie between soldiers. On the other hand ive herd people say that if you the potencial to be an officer then go for it. as an officer could you give me some info regarding the above statements...oh n please be honest

cheers

They do use their rifles, the officers lead by example. Therefore they get stuck in.

Feel free to correct me if im wrong.

You do know that for your AIB you'll have to write an essay? First off I'd learn how to construct a readable sentence. If your excuse is that you can't be bothered then get bothered quick.

Hehe perhaps. I'm not usually. If you're going to talk about becoming an Officer, or if you're going to talk to an Officer, I don't think it's too much to ask to try and use decent English. My grammar and spelling isn't anywhere near perfect, but taking the time to check over what you've written conveys some respect for the people that you're hoping will take the time to read your post.

Edit: Not to mention that fact that if your ambition to become a YO are indeed true, then you may as well start getting used to writing properly now!!

Well I'm still waiting on these papers from the Greek army. Good thing is I've got them now, so I just need to translate them. That will probably take another 2 months as the Greek beaurocratic system is somewhat...well...Greek!

After that's done the Captain, who's incharge of my application, says it will be straight onto psycometric tests, SIFT interviews and medicals. I just want to get the medical out of the way, it's the only part in the process that I can't control and the only part I'm not confident about.

So in short, yes I'm still waiting haha!

What about you?

I'd have to agree with Sotiris. I have tried to use correct grammar on this forum, because I want to become an officer and I don't want to fall into the habits of incorrect grammar.

Soon this website is being taken over by the RM, so you don't know who is watching what you write on here. It may only seem like an internet forum but it could dictate your future.

Also it shows a little bit of respect to others who want to be able to read without having to desipher some sentences.

Not having a pop at you here, I'm just pointing some things out.

I'm not biting anyones head off. Just stating the facts. Without looking at your profile I'd assume you were quite young and not very mature. That's not me being malicious, it's just the impression I get from reading your posts. If you want to be a potential YO...well, can't you see what I'm getting at?

It wont do you any harm to smarten up your written language.

Fellas,
Sotiris is absolutely correct on this one. Stop using 'text speak' and start writing readable posts. Some of the grammer and spelling on this forum is apalling. You should do it out of respect to everyone else that reads these pages. I am not saying it has to be perfect, even I make the odd mistake. However, compare some of the posts I place on the site to some of the 'text-speak' rubbish that gets written on here. Get used to writing proper sentances with punctuation.
It's nothing to do with being bitchy, it's about being professional. Proof read your posts!
