    Oh gawd, NOT AGAIN!!!!!!!
  3. How old are you?
  4. This topic has been done to death so I suggest 3 options:

    1. Vist the Royal Marine website
    2. Visit the Para website (via the Army site)

    We know both are elite and both are hard to get into etc but it really is down to you. I'd imagine both experiances are the same becuase of this.

    But eh? What do I know......
  5. cheers for the info sorry didnt relises it was a common question and im 21 mate
  6. In the Infantry forum we have

    para's or marines
    Grenadier Guards or Paras
    [ Poll ] Paratrooper or royal marines

    and in Joining Up (Regular)

    paras or royal anglians
    para 2 or para 3?

    All in the last 2 days, I think. 8O

    Mostly the same users as well.
  7. ok thanx i should of loooked before thanx for ur advice
  8. Well, as much as it pisses everyone off, remember - the only stupid question is the one you don't ask.
  9. Are your friends serving / ex forces, if they are have they served in either unit, if they are civvies are they even qualified to advise?

    Your 21, make up your own mind.

    Quite correct but shouldn't you ask the right people and make your own mind up?
    What if the Marines don't want him?
    What if we all vote none of the above?
    Chances are an Army website will go for the Army ask on RR and they will say marines

    Do you really want to base your career and possibly the next few years of your life on what a bunch of internet jokers say?
    If your due to go in after xmas haven't you left it a bit late?

    **** me what next should I put my left boot or right boot on?
  11. i no itsa down to me to decide i only wanted some info other than whgats wrote on a computer screen and one ius serving in the marines and is an ex para
