Hello all, Something was brought to my attention recently when I found these 3 PDFs on the Army's website http://www.army.mod.uk/documents/general/rmas_cc113_list.pdf http://www.army.mod.uk/documents/general/rmas_cc112_list.pdf http://www.army.mod.uk/documents/general/rmas_cc111_list.pdf If you're blind or perhaps stupid these are the Commissioning lists for men and women who have earned their commission from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. After looking at the names and schools on the list, I realised that quite allot of the men commissioned into the Infantry and RAC come from perhaps higher up the social ladder (I.e Public and Private Grammar schools) than my self. Therefore could it be the army still recruits on Social Merit? That this so called classless army is a lie? (Except in the Household division) This raised a question in my head about the Marines and my Officer application, is it the same in the Marines, are Potential officers more likely to be picked under social merit than actual officer potential? Under the guise of not fitting into the mess? I could be wrong about the army but do any currently serving or potential officers have any clue about what class is like in the Marines?
