    I'll probably have my sift interview for the royal marines officer in the next few months, so I thought I best start preparing early. I'm just wandering what I need to know for the interview, I'm not too interested in the personal/lifestyle/hobbies questions I'm more interested in what you need to know regarding current affairs the royal navy and the royal marines.

    I would really appreciate it if someone could give me a list of all the knowledge you need to know, and tell me where I can find it

    Thankyou very much

    There's a fair few threads floating around on the subject (below)

    What tends to happen is RM Officer applicants neglect to revise outside of 3 Commando Brigade.

    The things you need to be able to do is recognises types of warship, submarines and aircraft operated by the RN (silhouette & photographs) , together with their weapons and sensors, names of Key players in the RN, etc.

    Witrh regard current affairs, it isn't specifically assessed however an awarenwess of UK foreign policy & military involvementwould be prudent, together with an awareness of non-miltary topics, names of the Defence Ministers etc.,

    Wow, this is reviving an old thread! @Ninja_Stoker , the links in this post look helpful but appear invalid. Are there any links that work with specific SIFT advice that are a bit more up to date?

    Thanks, Duff
