Just introducing myself. Currently serving bootneck based with ASG in Bovington. We are without doubt the busiest arm of the corp today - we provide the Armoured Support element in the guise of the new 'BV replacement', known as the 'Vikings'.

I'm coming up to 10th year in the corp and still haven't done anywhere near everything there is on offer, but I have been about a bit. I'll try and offer advise about units, career paths, pay scales, available drafts after training and any other bits of info I can help out with.

That'll do for now - see you on the threads :shakehands:

Hiya Royal, welcome to the site.

Excellent news: we were rather hoping for someone current & experienced, such as yourself.

From my perspective, whilst I can happily advise on the recruiting process and how to get in to the Royal Marines, I'm not a marine. Therefore I spend a lot of my time pestering the Commandos attached to the AFCO or ringing commando units (mainly CTC) for definitive advice on what happens after you have entered the Corps & specifically advice on specialisations, deployments, drafts, promotion prospects & Corps life after completing training.

Spookily, as you're aware, the RN/RM Recruiting School is co-located at Bovington, so we both know the area quite well!

Again, welcome aboard!

Thanks for the welcome guys. I'll try and pop on here regularaly and offer advice, give what info I can etc. This is an excellent site and I can't help but notice that pretty much all of the questions are answered by the members and the admin - good support and good info base.
If anyone has any questions they don't want to post about feel free to pm me.
