I went on an Army one ages ago and they had virtual rifle ranges, hands on with weapons, the opportunity to play football with a tank (haha) and a competition were you put your details down to win an iPod, and then the next day they ring you asking you to join up ! Sneaky *text deleted**text deleted**text deleted**s haha. As for a RM one, it's probably similar to an RMAD.

I went to the para insight course, was awesome, but also the hardest thing ever. Dunno what the Marine one is like but the Para one is like a weekend of fitness tests with a few lectures on weapons and history stuff. they also chucked in the Log Race and Asualt course for good measure.

Depends. If it's a 'Meet the Marines' Day, I went on a couple. Good fun, not very helpful if you alread want to join/have knowledge, but still great fun, and you can write it down as proving you have a real interest in it. We got a rid eon a rigid raider, did some potholing thing, a mini confidence test/abseiling/climbing wall thing, weapons acquaint (SA80 up to MILAN), quick talk on Royal itsself, and an unarmed combat display. All good fun, but nothing strenuous or challenging. Oh and we did paintballing, and that was good fun, doing it with a bunch of clueless lads, 12 of us who do cadets went, and just basic infantry skills had us owning.

If it's not that, then I don't have a clue....
:P
