Recently Chief Petty Officer Gary Richardson of the Royal Navy and the Royal Marines Visibility team made a visit to teach Borders College students about the process of joining the Navy and all of the roles and responsibilities of the Royal Marines.
Student Cameron Fender wrote of the session: “The presentation was very informative, keeping the whole class interested and the Royal Marines did a very good job of answering all the questions that they were asked.
“The fitness was an eye-opener as an introduction to the training style of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines.
“The class really enjoyed the high intensity training and team building exercises that were set out.
It has now changed the minds of some of the students that are now considering a career within the Royal Navy/ Royal Marines.
