Standing out - In a good way!

#1
Hey guys,

I'll be applying to the Royal Marines early next year, shamelessly using the TA for experiance, training and phys.
Basically I'm treating the TA like I would any other job, giving 100% and cracking on with whatever needs to be done, helping others etc. I'm due to start weekend 3 of P1 Basic training on may 8th.. and want to stand out in a positive way, whilst not looking like a brown-nosing whore.

If anyone has any bits of advice of anything extra I can do either at the RTC or the TAC or even things in spare time (unemployed at the moment, so anything that requires a bit of time isn't a problem) to "shine" so to speak, then I would appreciate it.

Thanks, Matt

You seem to be good at borrowing things without asking or paying... Ever thought of a different, more transport based unit to join?




Edited for a very unsignature spelling error. :x
