MY only advice regarding the 'By Sea, By Land' bit, is that if you say it the wrong way around it could be viewed as running away, so get it the right way around. The way I, and many others remember the Latin bit, it in my mind is "By 'orse, By Tram" (Per Mare, Per Terram), but it's probably wiser not to actually voice it.

Having said that the Royal Marines recently managed, whilst 800 miles inland in Afghanistan, to do an amphibious raid across a lake to attack a Taliban force on two fronts, so maybe it's not a heinous crime if you get it the wrong way around, as long as you remember that example.

would i be right in saying they might be getting a little more lax at the interview stage because we need more people?

Text speak = silly. Just a heads up, admins prefer as close to correct English as possible, due to the things that monitor the site picking up potentially useful keywords for search engines.

yeah I think he's trolling because it seems pretty silly but if you're not then try www.royalmarines.mod.uk


there's not alot you won't find out on there, just keep searching. if you do happen to be trolling, then .. whatever. Read it anyway, it might help you out either way.

To be honest, I think he is trolling.
it could be he gave a really good interview and just happened not to know that one thing... in any case, this thread has rather served it's purpose now....

yeha, I think if he passed his interview then fair play, aslong as he doesn't talk like he types.
