Out of interest (maybe not :roll: ) there was a time in the early 90's when they dropped the intake from a troop every two weeks to one every four and then (I think) six. Great for the dhobi and scran queue but a shitter if you got backtrooped. PRC passes were something between five and ten out of every forty odd and 'you're surplus to requirements' was a daily mantra. Then they wondered why lads were getting hacked off filling deployments and making up unit numbers here and there and leaving. Good to see more of an effort these days getting lads into the best club in the world.

60? No chance. Maybe 60 different courses at a time, nowhere near 60 recruit troops. Senior troop at the minute is 890, junior tp is 904 I think, possibly 905. So no more than 15 or 16 at a time (the next one joins a week after summer, before 890 pass out).

As has been said, 16 is about right. Troop size is about 40 so its about 640 recruits. JCC starts off at about 70 and SCC at about 40. Then there is the AACC which at the moment starts off at about 90. Then you have to add Sigs, HWs, and all the other bits and bobs. New intakes are every two weeks but it wasn't that long ago that they were joining every week.

Recruit training is running at about 70% capacity at the moment. As soon as the level of recruiting goes up again (don't hold your breath) it will be a simple task to add a couple of training teams to meet demand. Unfortunatly certain other departments are streatched to breaking point at the moment and get sod all support and manpower from drafty. When leave is over there will be 8 Marines in my department. When I joined the troop there were 24 doing the same amount of work.
