Touchstone, It depends very much on the injury. If it takes a long time to fix then the individual will be back batched. If they are seriously injured in the 10th wk of training, they'll probably go back to the 4th. They need to get to know their batchmates properly and bond with them. Whilst they are back batched, they will do some phys with Hunter Coy but will not be formally a part of them.
If you excuse the bluntness, why are you focussing on the back batching part? Are you planning on getting injured? It doesn't happen often, three in my batch and one subsequently passed out the year after.
I do not know the numbers passing the AIB and POC this year, it's not very often made public. If you are good enough and you want it enough, you'll get into training, it's that simple.
I also find txt speak damn annoying.
When you say injured in the 10th week and moved back to 4th, you mean the 4th week of the next years batch? I was merely curious. But looking at batches of recruits the drop outs and backtrooping can be very high with many sustaining injuries. This is more of a concern with YO training as the opportunity only comes once a year and it would be gutting to get injured and have to wait so long. And I want it more than anything in the world.
Here's a question I'm not sure if you can answer. Would you say that career progression for Royal Marines Officers is good after they leave? Are they sought after in different job roles? I was told that many Officers in the Army would leave into their late 20's never progressing beyond the rank of Captain.
Thank you for your time.
