Hi just wondered if anyone new what the single accomodation is like at Marchwood camp. Is it 1 person per room? Or do you have to share? Im thinking of going Port-Op but im 31 so can't be arsed sharing a room with someone.

Are you aware of the values and standards of the British Army?

One of them is selfless commitment.

You're 31, so what? The Army is rank based not age based, you'll go where you're put.

Your previous service will count for little if anything, you'll just be a nig like every other new boy.

You should have the advantage of knowing how to play the game, which should see you move along quicker than most.

I say should, because your initial post is indicative of someone who didn't really get it first time round and using the term 'can't be arsed' makes me wonder if you can be arsed with what is expected of you.

I think you need to go away and rethink your strategy for this second bite at a worthwhile career.

You'll need to get in and find out how your pension will work out as it will be affected by your previous service, it'll take admin 20 years to get it right.

Aye & they shared 30 to a room in bunks. Considering they were dockers it's a miracle they didn't complain. :)

Well, they have single rooms for everyone, with ensuite showers. There is also free internet, cable tv with porn sites, mini bar and room service courtesy of the slop house.

You can't be arsed sharing a room? Who do you think you are? What do you think the Army is? A holiday camp? Do you think that you get your own car from the Army to get you to and from home as well?

The accommodation is what it is and what you make of it. Now stop asking stupid questions and get a sense of reality.

Don't know if the Mars Bar (Mariners Bar?) is still there. Possibly still serving Double Diamond, or was it Worthington E?
