Your service ID card has "Royal Navy" emblazoned across the top, much to the ire of many a Royal Marine.

Once you finish training it has your rank as "MNE" (Marine), but I think it has "RCT" (Recruit) initially.

It may have done if you were given the old cardboard version, however the plastic "credit card" has, and always has had: Royal Navy.

What, it took him 5 years to notice?

Awesome stats Macca! What were they like before you joined the Troop?

There were twins at my OTC selection that ran 1.5 miles in 6.10. I've never seen anything like it, they literally did sprint the whole thing!

Hehe so I guess the training works then :cheesy:?

Well, I'm sorry for the circumstances that led to your leaving the first time. Good luck for the second time around. I bet it's so much more exciting knowing that you'll be quite familiar and very fit for it.

Yea, I remember them speaking in their lecturettes (about themselves), they run for all kinds of things and hope to do so professionally one day. The staff were over the moon with them, I think they said it was a new record for them.

Haha, no. I just recently got in contact with him. I lost contact when he went in. I asked him about the card. Just saying that he was angry that it says Royal Navy.
