Will's gruelling final test in bid to be Marine
A 24-YEAR-OLD former Gordano School pupil is close to becoming a Royal Marines Commando.
As a soldier attached to the Royal Marines Reserve in Bristol, Will Jones has given 18 months' dedicated commitment to the toughest of training regimes with every challenge having to be met in his spare time.
Will, who lives in Southville, works as an inventory manager for DEKS UK, a distribution company based in Nailsea.
That means being prepared to complete a busy week in the office and then promptly setting off for a demanding weekend programme of physical training, all-night exercises, military skills and, in all probability, limited sleep.

Will and the 2010 intake from Bristol have been busy recently completing their phase two training at the Royal Marines Commando Training Centre, Lympstone, near Exeter.
One hurdle remains – the final commando test, including a nine-mile speed march, the Tarzan assault course and, at the end, a 30-mile yomp across Dartmoor, all carrying full fighting order.
"My grandfather was in the Marines and that's what sparked my interest in taking up the challenge," he said.
"It has been tough at times, particularly when we are out in the field. It is definitely not easy after a week's work to set off for training when you know your mates back home will be enjoying a social night out."
