No I didnt quote that, but it does make sense

The training is still under the auspices of the RAF flying training cvommand

Its seems the RM are irrelevant, I read that, over 200 are being got rid of to make room for matelots.

I've "assumed" nothing. I posted facts, not hearsay and guesswork like yourself.

It was quoted in your post, so yes, you did quote it.

The instructors are civilians from a private company and all of the facilities have been provided by the private company. RAF who?

My brother is a RAF pilot and you know, he probably knows more about these things than you do.

Not at all, none got sacked or made redundant. They just won't replace those that leave through natural wastage.

"Admiral Jones said he knew how vital the marines were as "the UK's premier high readiness contingency force", but added: "I also know we must adapt to meet the challenges of a dangerous and uncertain world."

He continued: "The Royal Marines remain bound into every part of the Royal Navy's future, from conducting sophisticated operations from the sea, at a variety of scales and against a range of threats, using our new aircraft carriers as a base, to leading the Service's development of information warfare."

It's like the RAF where they got rid of all the aircraft so you have lots of pilots with nothing to fly. Remember they sacked about 100 trainee RAF pilots several years ago.

Treacherous terrain. Challenging conditions. Unwelcoming coastlines. Enemy territory. None of it stands in our way. It canít, because what makes us elite is getting the job done where others canít. By land, by sea, by air. Per mare per terram.

This sounds like Scotland "Treacherous terrain. Challenging conditions. Unwelcoming coastlines. Enemy territory."
