Long time since I’ve done anything RM related and it seems to me that the PRMC has changed some what, at least with the run (but then it was always changing). However I still keep fit with the same methods. Much of what’s been said on here is pretty good advice, what I’d say to you though is this: M...

I mean to ring up 10 Company at some point to get some clarity on this but since I’m here... I'm currently with 3rd battalion Princess of Wales Royal Regiment down in Brighton. I’ve been in about a year and a half with previous on and off reserve training prior to this. I’m currently still at uni do...

In an attempt to save this thread before it fulfils the prophecy by itself... The Middle East will continue to be a threat to international security as long as the West has its fingers all over the region, however we’ve played a large part in its current mess and our vital regional interests will co...

Zeus, I thought about 131, seems to offer some excellent opportunities. At the moment I’m resident in Pompy, but from end of June I’ll be near Brighton. Nearest 131 det is London Kingsbury, will take about 2 hours travel one way which I can put up with. Are you a member? If so what’s the score with ...

Sorry Spooky, I meant this year, not next. Thanks for the replies guys, I’ve had a bit of a think since my first post and come to the conclusion that my best bet is to bite the bullet and transfer at some point to an elite unit. Until then I’m going to put in for Officer training once phase two is o...

Have you thought about the RMR? There is a Detachment in Bermondsey. It'll require a little more of your time and a lot more of your energy but it'll be worth it. I did about half the basic training with RMR but came out and decided to leave it for a while, as much as I wanted it, I wasn't ready for...

I can confirm that the 'R' isn't around any more, just the same flashes as the regulars. benjordan81, We were constantly told what to expect when/if we passed out of training (I never made it, but intend to try again at some point). Basically you can do any course the regs do, they will even send yo...

It might be worth looking into the RMR Holding troop sessions: If you explain your situation to them they should be able to put you in with the holding troop Phys sessions which will give you a good RM Style thrashing every week, if the Holding troop sessions arn't running for some reason then have ...

I DO NOT claim to know all but as their is a lack of coherent advise in this topic I thought I might a...
