A £20 model from tesco wi...

Sadly missed

My training troop (935), did the drill display for the annual RMA congregation at CTCRM on Sept 8th, it was nice to get eyes on such a hoofing boss as JJ Moore. My kings squad pass out was a week later, I still cant believe he died the day after my KSPO. I joined Lima Coy at 42 so was fortunate to b...

Just got back from my second 5 miler. I knocked 2 mins off the time. I now do it in 58mins where earlier this week I managed it in an hour!!!! Yeah, as you say, you still have plenty of work to do, you will need to get the 5 miler down to 40 mins really then carry on working from there. As long as ...

Re: I don't know how to put this

even when I am running I would happily stop after a mile. At the moment my life is at a stand still and I have been the lazyist sod I know, I haven't had a job in about 5 months now and since my last PRMC my fitness has gone down the drain. Stinks, you have summed yourself up there, that is the quo...

Re: girlfriends while joining the corps

During my PRMC I missed my girlfriend a lot more than I thought I would. It's made me re-think if it's really what I want to do. We are very close and hope to get married and all the rest one day.

Re: Age

Hi, anyone experienced any problems joining near the upper age limit? I'm 28, already fit and strong but working hard in preparation. Hi mate, I am 28 and half way through recruit training, age is not a problem at all. The hardest part is putting up with immature kids who think the Marines is the c...
