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. Is there much difference between life in the Marines and life in the infantry? Are Marines expected to do a different job on operations or is it just the same as what infantry in the army? Are there differences in the day to day duties also?

    I know info is out there on both the infantry and Marines but I'd like to hear views from people who aren't involved in either recruitment or promotion.

  2. Are you thinking of going Royal Marines?
  3. Marines get naked and fight each other. They also pack stilletos in their bergans and will indulge in a bit of cross dressing. Sometimes they get to play with boats or if they are really lucky sit on a ship for 6 months.

    I think that just about covers the main differences...
  4. Or go to exotic places like...Iran!!
  5. You could try the Rum Ration; there's one or two sane blokes there amongst all those Navy types... ;)
  6. Marines are very good at flag waving. White ones that is! :D

    They are also experts at navigation and never get lost! 8O
