Aside from doing a lot of phys and general home jobs such as tidying, cleaning, washing, etc, and the Map reading and Ironing/Folding videos on the Royal Marines YouTube channel, is there anything else I should/could be doing in preparation for ROP & RT?

Take a look at these threads:

Adjust your mental attitude. Accept that when RT appears ‘unfair’ and ‘petty’ one is learning lessons about attention to minute detail which will keep you and your oppos alive.
Strive for perfection but accept that not achieving it will sometimes be inevitable. :) Don't get the hump when this happens; smile and crack on.

Hopefully others will chip in with their own comments.

Cheers, I’ll keep that all in mind! I have a habit of been too much of a perfectionist and being very self critical so hopefully this will help me in a way when I’m down there.
