Hi Guys, my first post. I might be going on Green Student with 29 Commando, just wondering if anyone has done this course? Any stories or info?
cheers

My old unit has sent many a chap on the aforementioned beast-a-thon! I'll get my cabbageheaded chum to get his ass back-online and post some horror stories for ya!

Pain is weakness leaving the body etc etc.... unlucky! :evil:

:idea: Don't bang on about getting shot of your 'crap hat' until you actually have a green one.

I don't, but I've seen a few matelots go off to All Arms strutting like they've already completed it, only to get binned for being a heap, a knob or both. :oops:

Usual advice to Jolly Jack from Royal is to build up upper body strength as well as your aerobic fitness before you turn up.

Oh, and something about worm omlettes. :twisted:

Spoke to a mate that did Ex. Green Student a year or so ago and all he said was:

Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys, Phys.... get the picture!

Hope that helps. Oh you get a wee badge at the end of it for your efforts though.
