no the best all round and who gets noticed.
So, NOT the best at camouflage, then.

You MUST be the elder brother - you're bigger than him.

To join as a commando you have to join the Royal Marines. The army do it later. Can join army as a para though. Commando is by far the best (i'm in for it now) but not if you dont want to spend your time on exercise in the snow in norway.

To clarify, Commandos are Royal Marines, not Army. The Army does have Commando units, but you have to become a soldier first, then do additional training.

Forgive my asking. But you said you were joining in eight weeks. So are you full of sh*t?

OK. Who's running the book on the identity of the wind-up merchant behind this one?

But army commandos are still commandos. To be a recruit as a commando though, its RM. If you join the army you have to do the all arms commando course later. Join the Royal Engineers. We need commandos.

Now, now D_R. He probably means that he intends to apply to join the Army in 8 weeks. Doesn't appreciate that it isn't an instant membership.

Sorry, if you were joining in eight weeks you'd know where you were going. Nice try though!
