UK/US SNCO Exchange - RMR - how?

#1
Given the RMR don't have a two week camp as such ( AIUI ), how can they get pax on this programme when they wont be able to host any of Uncle Sam's Misguided Children in return?

( and no, I've not been knocked back from this...)

It used to be TA, but I gather that the RNR have blagged onto it as well as the RMR.

Maybe it depends on what part of RMR is involved........<cough>Poole. Someone I knew who was <cough>RMR spent a nice couple of weeks at Camp Pendleton with recon and came back wearing a set of those big para wings USMC wear. I gathered that they reciprocate by inviting them to swap the southern californian sunshine for the UK south coast and the English Channel. This must have been around 5 or 6 years back, but I can't see that it would have changed.

If you want I can see if my mucker at college here knows anything about it as he just left the USMC based at Pendleton.

Why wouldn't they? Amazingly, there are other parts of the Armed Forces apart from the Army, and we don't have to do exactly what you do. Go pass RAACC and you too can go to America!

Thing is the Royal Marines are part of the Royal Navy, thus they are first amongst equals and gods amongst men. thus they get to go to the US because the USMC really like the RM and invite them to play.

The Army, however, smell and thus only get invited to play with the French or Pikies.

No charge.

On a serious note there is a very active exchange programme with the USMC and RM at all levels.

I've seen RMR on the official UK/USANG programme.


When we've hosted as a unit we always try and do it on our camp, sometimes it hasn't worked out.
We've got round this two ways.

1) Book a regular camp for them and get blokes who can come in during the week and organise activities for them.

2) As above but have them doss in the Drill hall ( I think option 2 is crap, although I've slept a couple of nights on a USANG Armoury floor on a similar exchange)

To get on the programme they just need to apply though the normal channels, not sure if I've still got any contact details.

My query is about the lack of a two week camp with the RMR. Guys I know that have done the Exchange have done the USNG AT, and the Septics came over here for our AT.

Tentoes might have the answer.

2010 was the 25th Anniversary of the USNG / TA Exchange Progamme.

So, nerr.
