    i think 11 out of 26 passed. about 10 failed in the gym 7-8 of which were on the bleep test (be prepared) and a few on points. 2 left on day 1 the rest failed on Bottom field and EC.

    i was in blue section. our interview was pretty good. the corporal was sound. we stood around him and he just asked us questions individually such as give me an example of what you can learn in training? where is 30 commando based? who were we fighting in iraq and Afghanistan? what was one of the corps defining actions in iraq? where are the commando units based? he also asked us to split into pairs and each give 2 commando tests - what the test involves, time, weight ect. we didnt get asked any VC winners ( i was pulled on the rmfa so not sure if VC questions were asked later).

    the whole interview was good, the corporal was taking the mick out of us all, joking around and generally chilled out. as long as you know your stuff you will be fine. but in there own words if you dont know the answer to a question they will just hammer you with more and make you look stupid. they are really cracking down with the interviews and are annoyed that people want to join but know very little about the corp and its history. i never got asked about VC winners but one of the corporals said that you need to know in depth what each VC winner did. not just a small sentence on what hey did . try and know all 10 if not at the very least 5. and know them well. also know all the less major units such as 1 ASGRM, 539 ASRM, 4 ASRM, 6 ASRM, 9 ASRM and which ships they belong to, 10 landing craft training squadron, RM MAOT teams ect. as the corporal said ' you should know these units so if you get your green beret you know what opportunities are out there'.

    no just one foot. you get 2 warnings then out. after my first warning i started to panic and from there t all went down hill. if your foot is an inch away from the fline you will be flagged then if it happens twice more your out.

    Yeah the weights are definitely not needed unless they're lower body exercises used to tire the legs as the only benefit I reaped from doing weights was the gain in mass and improving pull ups.

    Thanks for the help!

    Thanks! Not sure if you've seen my thread on kit to take down, but did your son take anything extra at all?

    I borrowed that foam roller after bottom field, was a life saver before the endurance course!
