Alright mate
Not to be harsh or anything but have you actually read any of the booklets or leaflets that they gave ya? If not then do that first cause you can find out quite alot of this stuff in them. The answers to All of the RM current affairs q's will be on the Royal Marines Official Site, and as for anything else just have a look on wikipedia. Oh and learn about 3 of the recent VC's, that should be enough
Good luck.
