the Rifles

#2
1 Rifles aren't a Commando unit, they're a unit who are in 3 Cdo Bde. There is no requirement for anyone within 1 Rifles to do AACC, they earn their place in the Bde by doing a Amphib work-up, just like 40, 42 and 45.

6th Rifles deploy with 1 Rifles, there has been a few lads from 6th who tried out for it so in theory u can do the AACC
As do 7 Rifles and a number of other non-Rifle TA units...

And other Rifle Bns can back fill 1 if neccesary.

In theory, and indeed practice, anyone in the Army can do AACC. That is what the AA stands for All Arms. No reason why a 5 Rifles or 2 Mercian guy couldn't get a spot.

There are quite a few blokes in 1 Rifles who have done AACC. Probably more than most other non Commando units.

If you want to be TA but Commando roled, you can choose from Engineers ( 131 Cdo RE ) or Artillery; no doubt others as well.

Or even the Royal Marine Reserve ( bunch of hoofing beefers. )

One of my PSIs is 1 Rifles and he wears the red dagger on a blue cheesewedge shaped backing.

And sets fire to loaned Jetboils...

To be fair, he bought his Goretex to Dixies Corner, but did not think he'd need to carry it, the area being so rain-free.
