Hiya everyone, my name is Alexander, I am 17 years old and currently have an application in to become a Royal Marines Officer. I am currently in sixth-form college studying History, Politics and French and am hoping to join after college (do not want to attend university). I recently passed my medical, and have booked my PJFT for next week. I have always wanted to join the military and decided upon the Royal Marines 2 years ago, having gone to RM cadets for 2 years. I decided to apply as an Officer to give myself an extra challenge and feel like that would be a position where I could be fully and effectively utilized ; being a thinking soldier as well as a doing soldier. If you read through all that, thanks. Hope to be posting regularly with updates!
