I served five years in the Marines as an officer, however after returning from a tour of Iraq I ended up putting a civvi in hospital and was sub sequentially charged and sentenced for GBH by the crown court. I received an Â£8000 fine and nothing else. I was never disciplined by the Navy but after a review by the admiralty they thought it might be best if I got a job elsewhere as it didnât look too good trying to stop the lads from misbehaving when they had officers getting done for GBH. Anyway that was over four years ago now and as much as I love being a Civvi I was considering joining up again as a regular soldier with the Army this time. Do you think my past will stand against me or do you think the Army would welcome a former Royal Marine Captain who has done two tours of Iraq?
