after the PRMC there is a 6 week period between that and your RMC training at lympstone, which at a minimum is 32 weeks, if you get an injury or stuggle with a certain part of the training you will be put into hunter company and repeat that part of the training adding to the 32 weeks.
15 years 9 months old but they prefer you enter at the age of 18
about 7.5. well you ask a silly question you get a silly answer. The royal marines are though as the best of the british military . aside from the special services . The Commando course . The culmination of training is the Commando course. Following the Royal Marines taking on responsibil…ity for the Commando role with the disbandment of the Army Commandos at the end of World War II, all Royal Marines, except those in the Royal Marines Band Service, complete the Commando course as part of their training (see below). Key aspects of the course include climbing and ropework techniques, patrolling, and amphibious warfare operations.. This intense phase ends with a series of tests which have remained virtually unchanged since World War II. Again, these tests are done in full fighting order of 32 lb (14.5 kg) of equipment.. The Commando Tests are taken on consecutive days and all four tests must be successfully completed within a seven day period; they include;. A nine mile (14.5 km) speed march , carrying full fighting order, to be completed in 90 minutes; the pace is thus 10 minutes per mile (6 min/km or 6 mph). . The Endurance course is a six mile (9.65 km) course across rough moorland and woodland terrain at Woodbury Common near Lympstone, which includes tunnels, pipes, wading pools, and an underwater culvert. The course ends with a four mile (6 km) run back to CTCRM. Followed by a marksmanship test, where the recruit must hit 6 out of 10 shots at a 25m target simulating 200 m. To be completed in 73 minutes (71 minutes for Royal Marine officers). Originally 72 minutes, these times were recently increased by one minute as the route of the course was altered. . The Tarzan Assault Course . This is an assault course combined with an aerial confidence test. It starts with a death slide (now known as The Commando Slide) and ends with a rope climb up a thirty foot near-vertical wall. It must be completed with full fighting order in 13 minutes, 12 minutes for officers. The Potential Officers Course also includes confidence tests from the Tarzan Assault Course, although not with equipment. . The 30 miler . This is a 30 mile (48 km) march across upland Dartmoor, wearing full fighting order, and additional safety equipment carried by the recruit in a daysack. It must be completed in eight hours for recruits and seven hours for Royal Marine officers, who must also navigate the route themselves, rather than following a DS (a trained Royal Marine) with the rest of a syndicate and carry their own equipment.

The Globe . Granted by King George IV in "1827" in place of the One Hundred and Nine Battle Honours which the Marines Honourably earned.. The LAURELS were granted for the gallentry dispalyed by the Marines in the capture of Belle Isle in 1761
usually two and a half years after training but you can always request to leave and they wil either give you the option to take time of to think about what you want to do or ask you to work 12 months notice before leave... hope this helps
The Royal Marines require you to have, or to achieve, a very, very high standard of physical fitness. You will need a great deal of determination, if you are not very determined & focussed on why you want to join do not sign up. You will get very wet ! The possibilities of rejection are very high, a…nd I am sure you may not even be told why ... (MORE)
Royal Marines is from the ages 15 and 9 months to apply and then 16to begin training up to the age of 33. You must also meet heightand weight requirements which is something like 5'4 and 65kg.
The royal marines are part of the armed uniformed public services; They are the Royal Navy's infantry and are a vital aspect of the government's rapid reaction force. Likewise, they are required to be trained to work in different terrains and environments, from the cold, mountainous conditions in No…rthern Europe, to the hot regions of the Middle East and Africa and the tropical jungles of the Far East. The Royal marines are required to undergo what is said to be the most demanding infantry training regimes in the world. they play an important part of keeping the people and the country safe from dangers.

To protect the Royal Navy's ships on operations agains CQB situations and to aid the navy in piracy and smuggling. They are used to assult in sea to land/land to sea combat. In places like Aufghanistan, theey are an elite force of shock troops that are used for hit and run tactics.
you can only join the Royal marines if you have full British, Irish or Commonwealth citizenship. If you have got one of those you can join the RMC if you don't you can join the equally fine body of man that is the USMC.
Royal Marines are suitible for any terrain and any challenge. We go anywhere, we'll fight anyone, were always in the muck. They always send the Commandos in caus we dont give a monkeys.
per mare, per terras, meaning by sea by land hope that's helps jr It's actually Per Mare Per Terram
\nThe application process takes six months. If you have accepted then you will normally leave for training two months later. So in total it normally takes about eight months.
Royal Marines are trained for elite operations, they are trained in all the latest weapons and technology. They are a world known elite force as they make a huge impact to the battle field. Royal Marines are a tough unit.
SAS are trained for special operations, whereas Royal Marines are trained for more traditional military roles. Each has its purpose, and each is superb at it.. THE SAS ARE MORE EXTENSIVELY TRAINED IN MANY DIFFERENT AREAS. THEIR TRAINING IS MUCH LONGER AND IT IS MUCH MORE STRINGENT IN THEIR RECRUITM…ENT. MANY A GOOD MARINE COULD NOT PASS THE TRAINING FOR SAS AND ARE SENT BACK TO THEIR UNIT. THERE IS NO SHAME INVOLVED IT IS JUST THAT THE STANDARDS ARE SET VERY HIGH.. SAS are stronger and better trained but you have a better chance of getting into the Royal Marines but the SBS ( Special Boat Service) the army sound bad but they the Best of the Best. You have to be in the SAS to get into the SBS. The SBS is the equivalent of the SAS and is a branch within the Royal Marines. Candidates go through a similar training but with special regard to amphibious tasks. Many SAS members have had SBS training. (MORE)
Per Mere, Per Terram "by Sea, by Land" it was a battle honour to a royal marine victory in the American Revolutionary War, if you want the commando ethos look: http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/royalmarines/
Why not? Tatoos are restricted but as long as they do not show above the neck or on the hands or are racist/inflammotory they are OK, scars are perfectly acceptable. Good Luck!
It represents the Battle of The Rock of Gibraltar on the 21st July 1704 during the war of Britain (as part of a coalition) against France & Spain. On this day, 1900 Marines & 400 Dutch Marines stormed the island and forced the garrison to surrender, securing the Rock of Gibraltar as a tactical stand…point at the entrance to the Mediterranean Sea. It was seen as one of the outstanding achievements of the Corps and is a reflection of the calibre of men who wear the badge. (MORE)

A Royal Marine is an elite soldier (better known as a commando) trained to fight in naval combat with handheld weapons. They are also amphibious infantry that are trained to fight on land. They fight close to the army being elite shock troops used for hit and run tactics. (This is how they're used i…n Afghanistan) (MORE)

Per Mare Per Terram ("By Sea, By Land"), the motto of the Marines, is believed to have been used for the first time in 1775.
Once you finished selection you can become a front line fighting soldier. You can also become a helicopter pilot, chef, medic or you can join the SBS
USMC and Royal Marines are different forces; they just share thesame name. The Royal Marines conduct commando style operations,and gatherintel and paint targets for the RAF.They also pave the way for theRAF and British Army to conduct their operation.The British SAS andSBS conduct all of the specia…l operations.Marines always go infirst,with the exception of the Special forces,which were theremonths before,living in that country. Trying to compare the Royal Marines and US Marines is comparingapples and oranges. They are 99.9% different. They just share thesame name. (MORE)
It is impossible to rate any military force as the all-around best because the jobs they are trained/equipped to do are different, and based on the needs of a particular country. However, within the mission parameters of the Royal Marines, I am aware of none better.. USMC is as good as the Royal Ma…rines (MORE)
Para's 28 weeks recruit training(Jump course 4 weeks),marines 32weeks recruit training. Para's=Air assault(attack from the air)but have not use parachutinginto battle since WW2 they use the Hercules which is more commonlyknown nowadays. Royal Marines=built for endurance rather then speed, they aretr…ained amphibious soldiers (meaning they trained to survive and tofight on land and in the sea) Marines and Para's are both light infantry who are the frontlinetroops who are the first into battle which are very similar interms of infantry tactics. Para's work alongside the SAS in Para 1 UK SFSG(United KingdomSpecial Force Support Group)also the pathfinders who are Para'shand picked from Para 1,2,3 only the most skilled and intelligentmake it to this platoon which there is only 30 or less soldiers. There is a far greater percentage of Para's who pass SAS selectionafter all the name say's it all Special Air Service. Marines work alongside the SBS in UK SFSG they have reconnaissancesquadrons also. There is a far greater percentage of Marines who pass SBSselection(special Boat Service) This does not mean it is unheard of a marine in the SAS or viceversa. So the conclusion in my opinion they are both equal, butspecialists in there own fields, commando's and Para's are bothelite in there own right, which most men who go through theseregiments have aspirations of joining special forces that doesn'tmean they will all make it but they will have a good chance inexceeding, also no one can really answer this question because youneed someone who has experienced both lives which is rare due tothe competitive nature of both units, they are both the best of thebest. one last thing these men are a special bunch of individual'swho give there lives to protect society and there family's and needa lot more respect then they are given like with these pointlessand ridiculous questions.

The Green Beret shows that they are commando's and have passed the 32 weeks of the commando course at ctcrm Lympstone it is awarded at the end of the 30 mile speed march which is the last of the "commando tests".
(From the Recruiting Website) On the 28th October 1664 an Order-in-Council was issued calling for 1200 soldiers to be recruited for service in the Fleet, to be known as the Duke of York and Albany's Maritime Regiment of Foot. As the Duke of York was The Lord High Admiral, it became known as the Admi…ral's Regiment. The Regiment was paid by the Admiralty, it and its successors being the only long service troops in the 17th and 18th century navy.

A very rare few at any one time are serving as Liasion Officers or Exchange Duty Officers at any one time with the Royal Marines, perhaps a dozen at any one time on a routine basis.
Tough question, and not designed to improve Anglo-American relations, so I'll have a Walfdorf Salad and say that both are very tough, and I would not want to get on the bad side of either. The US Marines are a much larger unit than the UK Royal Marines, but the US is a much larger country, so it may… come out much the same in terms of individual toughness. (MORE)
The Royal Marines are a very well trained specialised commando force. Some may say they are not elite because they are not Special Forces, however they undergo some 8 months training including the gruelling Commando course, and have been involved in all major conflicts. As a far as their roles go th…ey are second to none. And would be amongst the best soldiers in the world. Making them a truly elite force. (MORE)
YES, Royal Marines are definitely one of the best units in the world because of their rigerous 32 week training regime and their history, from being the ships infantry in the 1700's to the elite raiding force of today. They now operate on all terain from dense tropical jungles to the freezing arctic… to the hot dry deserts and on beaches. The Royal Marines have earned the right to be classed as one of the best fighting forces in the world today. (MORE)
In 3 commando brigade there are 3 Commando regiments. (40 Commando, 42 Commando and 45 Commando) Each as about 1500 commandos. Also the the fleet arm protection group (Commandos that work on ships) has about 1500 Commandos and the Air assult unit has a further 1000 Commandos. Overall there is abou…t 7500 Commandos (MORE)
Ah ... yeah. And they do a rather decent job when they get there, too.
There is no best They rely on each other, they have the state of mind to look after and protect each other with the're lives. Even if there was a best Royal Marine, he would useless without knowing that his man behind him would happily give his live for him as he would do the same
They both have different roles and specialise in different things. They help each other by shareing their abilities.
As the paras are the elite part of the army, the Royal Marines are the elite part of the Navy. Some of the most feared soldiers in the world. They're basic training is the longest training program in NATO. (31 weeks)
The Royal Marines 3 Commando Brigade normally has about 7,000 men. Don't expect to ever see it all together employed at any time. It is routinely put together in much the same way that a Marine Expeditionary Unit is. That is as customized and mission specific unit based on a specific contingency or …mission. (MORE)
Turns out the last fool was lieing, after further research i found that you can be and they have allowed gays to serve for years. It is a part of the royal navy...lol
The Royal Marines are a much smaller body of men who receive a longer and more intensive basic training and more advanced training in special operations skills.
As far as i am aware there were no Royal Marines on board ships or protecting civilians, forts,routes, shipping lanes & cargo from the UK to America, India etc during 18th & 19th Centuries. However there is substantial proof & evidence that regiments of the Coldstream Guards from the Brigade of Gu…ards were undertaking all the duties as stated above well beyond the 19th Century, until the Royal Marines were formed. Needless to say the Royal Marines would never admit to being formed from the Coldstream Guards. (MORE)
Worry about getting in the Corps first mate. Once you're in you will be given the oppurtunity to specialise as a sniper, if you're good enough.
No. Better than your 'average soldier' due to the demanding training, but essentially do the same job as a 'regular' infantry soldier on operations. The 'Commando' designation often leads them to be mistakenly compared to US special operations units such as the Navy Seals or Ranger, however they are… not up to the same standards as they are still essentially being used as a regular unit. Despite this they are overall probably the 'most elite' unit that a civillian is able to join. (MORE)
The Royal Marines are a part of the Navy. They're the "go anywhere" amphibious infantry. They are also part of Britain's Rapid Reaction Force and considered by many to be among the top combat infantry soldiers in the world.
The leaving age is 40, unless you apply to do extended service and then has to be accepted.
Yes they can, the're more likley to join the SBS (special boat service) but the SAS invite people in the navy, air force and marines to join the SAS
From navy net: The Corps pattern belt is as follows: Blue - the RN connection Yellow - the colour of our first tunics (old gold for Duke of York& Albany's Maritime Regiment of Foot) Green - to denote the RM Light Infantry Red - to denote the RM Artillery Blue - once again for the RN connection
It's a complete myth that Prince Edward was thrown out of the RoyalMarines. In fact, he was half way through the Officers' trainingcourse, and coping perfectly well (I know - my cousin was in thesame training batch), but decided that it was not for him, andapplied for discharge from training on "per…sonal grounds", as he -like any other trainee - was entitled to do. After the normal"cooling off" period for reflection and discussion/ counsellingwith the Chief Training Officer (again, absolutely standard undersuch circumstances) he was allowed to leave on "voluntary releasefrom training". This is not uncommon: some young potential officersrealise after completing some of the very demanding training thatlife in the RM is just not for them, and the Corps will notgenerally try to retain them - what would be the point? To forcereluctant people through the course would be counterproductive, andif their motivation is lacking it's unlikely in any case thatthey'd complete the course! Many rumours - some nefarious - have abounded about why PrinceEdward dropped out. Truth is, he just did not want it - simple. Hewas a very fit young man possessing good communication andleadership skills, and intelligent, thoughtful, and well educated(respectable degree from Cambridge), and there's little doubt thathad he remained motivated he'd have passed, and passed well, toreceive a commission in the Royal Marines. The Royal Marines wouldhave loved to have him in their ranks for a few years, but sadly hedecided that they were not for him. There was no more to it thanthat - a young man took a wrong career turn (possibly paternalpressure had pushed him that way - again, not uncommon), and he hadthe courage to accept that he was a "square peg in a round hole"and leave, rather than continue with something he hated just tolive up to the expectations of others. Given the spotlight he wasunder, and the inevitable criticism, press speculation, rumours etcthat would follow, it was a courageous decision. As he notedhimself, "the Marines who would have been under my command deservenothing less than the full commitment of their leaders, something Ifelt unable to give." Fair one. Certainly, most people in the Corpsat the time respected him for his honesty. (MORE)
The Royal Marines are part of the Royal Navy and nothing to do with the Army.
An undisclosed number of royal marines are in the Royal Marine Corps. The Royal Marine Corps has an estimated 7600 troops as well as 700 in reserve. The exact number of troops in the Royal Marine Corps is roughly 8300, with additional recruits joining every year.
