LIVERSEDGE man David Brodowicz has completed one of the hardest military training regimes in the world.
David, 21, has gone through 32 weeks of gruelling and physically demanding tests of endurance to pass out as a Royal Marines Commando.
He will be joining 42 Commandos in 3 Commando Brigade, based in Plymouth.
Former Spen Valley pupil David said: "You don't have to be super-fit to join the Royal Marines - but you will be when you've finished your training.
"Everything you do is progressive, which means that all you need is stacks of determination."
The distinctive hallmark of a Royal Marines Commando is the Green Beret.
It indicates to others that the wearer has undergone intensive training and displayed the qualities of unselfishness, cheerfulness in adversity, courage, determination and high professional standards.
David added: "Being a Royal Marines Commando is the ultimate adventure. Believe me, there is no such thing as an average Monday morning."
