Receiving the Benefits of Experience

We always say, 'Once a Marine, always a Marine' but being a Royal Marines Association member isn't just about reliving the old times (although it' s a great way to do that). As a former Royal Marine you'll have opportunities to be a mentor, sharing your knowledge and experience and supporting tomorrow's Bootnecks through the ups and downs of Corps Life.
