Interesting 'shell game' of commandos with 42 taking over (a no doubt expanded) 43's maritime ops role...

Present that to an RM senior asking for ideas on the future of the corps and you'll get f*cked off at the high port. Maybe, just maybe, if you are a young lad just off of the moor with a brand new lid you'll get a nice smile and a pat on the head. With a warning about the Cdo ethos and the meaning of the word "humility".
"Don't cut us 'cos we're dead good, just listen to our dits" isn't a argument that going to cut any ice.
Note that what you get at CTC is Commando training, the clue is in the first letter of CTC. Dead good of you to tell me about Catterick, never heard of the place until now.
Given that Phase 1 lasts 14 weeks, Phase 2 anything over 3 but usually about 12, RA pre Cdo beat up IIRC 3, AACdo pre course 4 and AACdo 13 weeks a Gunner in 29 Cdo Regt will have done not less than 37 weeks training and more likely getting near or over 50. I take it they are "better" than RM Cdos?
