I was attached to 45 Cdo in Kosovo in 2000/2001 and would say that you couldent find a better bunch to work with, As long as you can deliver the goods no one will hold cap badge or arm of service aganst you. all you need to know is the Marine slang ie
Brew=Wet
Cookhouse= Galley
Scoff=Scran
Bogs=Heads
Never where your smock in the Cookhouse/Galley. Get used to being called Percy (Percy Pongo)they seem to think that no one in the army ever washes.

the nickname "Pongo" comes from the time when troop ships used to transport the army across the Empire. Due to limited washing facilities the massed body of men used to start to hum after a while - so the sayng went "wherever the Army goes the pong goes" - hence pongos

Go on admit it mate, you loved working with the marines because it allowed you to indulge in cross dressing and naked drinking!

What's depolying?

Does it mean getting rid of Polly?

Or not using poly bags?

I can only second FEASG. I was attached to the RM in Iraq...top blokes everyone and very chilled out compared to the army.
Also, don't ask them what instrument they play, although everyone else does, they do not find that funny!!!

There is a TA company being mobilised to go out next year to support 1 Royal Anglian (which isn't a big secret -it's advertised all over the net).
You may have missed the boat with the cabbage heads, but i am sure you will have lots of fun with the Vikings.
