A woz sittin for hours every day learning as much as a cud. Didnt wana leave owt 2 chance ya na. He basically spent most ov the interview askn az about me n me family, me school life n all that sorta stuff. He akd az what a do training wize, how often, times ov runs etc.. Ya need to know, where the prmc is, how long it lasts, what things ya do there, what scores ya need, how long basic training is, what ya pay is during training and straight after, how long do ya sign up for, when can ya give ya notice to leave, how much leave do ya get a year, what the 4 commando tests are, times they need to be dun in n then he askd me a few questions on the history. They were when woz the corps formed, describe each part of the corps badge, what is the corps motto, what specialisation u wud lyk to do and a bit about it. When he askd me about the history, he said 'Can u give me a brief description of what the marines have dun etc.. So obvisiously the more you no the better. He also askd me sum stuff about the Navy aswell so get clued up on everything!
Ninja Stoker wrote in a previous thread that if you answer things without much prompting then they tend to go a bit easier on the history side of things. A wudnt be relyin on that tho lads. The more you want it, the more you'll learn, the better you'll do. Put the wrk in n yal av ne problems!
