Royal Marine Reserve (Leeds/Manchester)

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by polar, Jul 12, 2007.

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. Just heard that a RMR detachment has been set up near me. Anyone had dealings with them, I presume the reserve commando course is similar to normal one?

    Do they have Sigs people (not the regimental sigs types but equivalents to RSigs who work in Bde HQ's).

    p.s. Does anyone think about where they are putting units. I mean I've got 2 para units, 1 SAS unit and now a marine unit within 10 miles of where I live
  2. The commando tests are exactly and done at lymstone.

    Some people reckon the commando course is easier in the TA or RMR because the regs are doing hard training and the reserves tip up to do the commando tests, but that being said you still have to do 1 weekend a month commando training and if your going to pass you'll be beasting yourself in your own time anyway without the benefit of a tailored training program or encouragement from the PTI, so I think the regs have got that a bit wrong.
  3. cheers, Manchester looks good, already have the specialist quals they are after (less commando course). Looks as if commando training takes two years (which may put me past my sell by date)
  4. It only takes 2 years if your not a trained rank. For TA cdo anyway.
  5. Am I right in thinking the commando continuation training is done on a 2 week camp, followed the next year by the commando course (2 weeks)
  6. The reserve commando course is run twice a year at lymstone.
  7. sent you a PM.
  8. Good luck.

    If you don't get the info. you require here, I suggest you post this on Rum Ration. This sort of stuff is their speciality, after all.
  9. Why oh why would anyone want to be a fat part time wannabe Para that spends all of their service time locked in a small tin can with loads of other men?

    The last part was rhetorical by the way :)

    Good luck
  10. Miiiaaaooowww! :twisted:

    Saucer of cream for Ms Stella! :D
  11. Has Aunty Stella had a sex-change op? I thought Legs was the only one going through that!

    Werewolf, you need to think of Aunty Stella as somewhat like Widow Twanky:



    Actually, dressed in that rig A S would probably do well with the Booties!
