The Commando
Mindset

Be the first to
understand; the
first to adapt and
respond; and the
first to overcome.

The Commando Values

  • Excellence. Strive to do better.
  • Integrity. Tell the truth.
  • Self-discipline. Resist the easy option.
  • Humility. Respect the rights, diversity and contribution of others

The Commando Spirit

  • Courage. Get out front and do what is right.
  • Determination. Never give up.
  • Unselfishness. Oppo first; team second; self last.
  • Cheerfulness. Make humour the heart of morale.

Why our members enjoy being part of the RMA

The sense of family.
I am giving something back. In my first job I relied on the Marines for security. I am now in a position with my work and lifestyle to help. I have been involved with helping a lad find a job in London, the local branch and fundraising... I am now starting to focus more on the welfare side of things. It is nice to help someone and see it make a difference.
