RT training will be the first time *text deleted** moved out of home and i dunno if i'll get homesickness or anything but this is my main worry as i feel very prepared for the phys i don't know if i could hack it. Bear in mind i've wanted to be a royal marine since i was six and am going to give it everything!

I think everyone will be feeling some sort of homesickness at one point or another!
It will be a shock to the system going to an odd place and learning to call it 'home' for the next 32 weeks, more so for the younger ones (Like myself! )

Home sickness is a horrid thing. I felt this immensely when I went through training. I missed my girlfried too. But hey, like anything else in life, its just another hurdle. After I passed out of basic training I often chose not to go home on leave. It was a different type of home sickness. I was sick of the sight of it. *text deleted*.

Expect to be homesick. Its only natural. If you expect this, then you'll learn how to overcome it.

You won't be the only one. That's for sure.
