    Swedish Army Commercial

    Not sure what you mean by legitimate commercial, they are being aired on Swedish T.V. There is a debate ongoing if the the adverts will get the the 3000 new recruits needed or not. One group says that they are basiclly saying '' Join us and you will get a boring job with a very bad salary ''...

    I second that. The book is just as good. Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington did a great job putting both together, especially after they lost alot of their footage.

    Joining UK Armed Forces

    No sorry, the two years applies to the Youth Mobility Visa, not to how long you must live there before applying. Once your in Britian you can immediatly apply to join the royal marines. Remember the application process can take 6 months or more in some cases, to make sure you can sustain...

    Joining UK Armed Forces

    Unless he/ she qualifies for the Youth Mobility Scheme, which I am assuming most individuals interested in the RM are. In that case it is only 40 required points plus 10 for funds (you are required to show you can sustain yourself in Britain in the two years the visa applies). Thats a good...

    Joining UK Armed Forces

    Canada is still commonwealth believe it or not. GrenadierGuard should have no problem joining the British military if he is currently in the CF, or got in at some recent point. Like I said here before, the only thing he has to worry about is qualifying for a Visa (look into the youth mobility...

    Joining UK Armed Forces

    Hi GrenadierGuard. I've been looking into joining the Royal marines on and off for the past year or so. Without getting into my life story, I've grown tired of waiting for the CF to open up under my preferred trade, and I am currently looking beyond our boarders as I assume you are as well. You...

    Hey Tarun welcome. Lots. Perhaps your post would be better placed in the personal stories section? You'll find a fair number of people on this forum in a similar situation to you. Some have been waiting much longer.

    anyone attend the CSOR AP & SOBQ before?

    Part of training / selection for SOF units is that the participants don't know what they are about to do. Aside from a general idea of what you might be doing (i.e; repelling from helicopters) don't expect to be told in advanced much more than that, as it would  corrupt (for lack of a better...
