Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What do General Duties Marines do?

    Do they choose a specialisation or are they assigned to a specalisation?

    Thank you.
  2. Rum Ration might be the best bet, but I think GD Marines are basicallly the Infantry Marines (40,42 and 45).
  3. Whatever is the answer, I'm glad it is not done against me!

    Good men 'Booties' - all the way from the bottom to the top.

    Thirty five and a half years in the Army included three and a half years with The Royal Marines - brilliant time.
  4. All Royal Marines pass out of training as GD, which is essentially the infantry specialisation. They serve throughout the Corps, not just in the three Commando Units however most will acquire an SQ (specialisation) at some point during their career, either through choice or otherwise.
