Posted on a different thread, but AGAIN relevant. Whilst i agree that not everyone is fantastic at english, it does not excuse people from finding a dictionary or using a form of spell checker.

When our tour finishes we are handing over to 3 Commando Brigade. :P Not strictly true: :D http://www.ti...

GGHT, You will have a set phys sesh pretty much every day, sometimes they will be double periods (a period being 45 mins if i remember right) including a swim after either an MSC circuit or MEC circuit. You may get a double MSC circuit once or twice, or more if your troop doesnt put in enough effort...

Informed comment from Dlink011 there? For a recruit in foundation the first session is very PRMC like, including a VO2 max test (bleep) and the USMC tests again, press ups, sit ups etc. After that you will do MSC circuits (Muscular strenght circuits), which are a very balls out gym session containin...

Artist, The one question i got wrong in my interview when i joined was "What is the daily pay of a recruit through basic traning?", i didnt know because to me it had not been an issue, i just wanted to be a Royal Marine. I wish i had kept that PMA when things got tough, but hey, we all make mistakes...

Artist, It seems Ben may have been taught the art of minesweeping elsewhere! And as for buying rounds, well, being a Rubber Dagger Nod for 18 months left me pennyless. Needless to say, the wets were on me. They,ll be no need to take away my Opt-out rights when i hopefully re-join, as the fear of ban...

Make sure he lets us know how his PRMC went. I failed my first time around and it wasnt nice, made passing the second that much better though. Good luck to you Benjo, and have a good 21st. I,m sure it will be a nice quiet affair at no 6......or not. :P
