SBS(R) - Reserves
The Special Boat Service has a reserves element known as SBS(R). The SBS(R) is used to augment and complement the regular SBS squadrons, rather than operate in independant units, as is the case with 21 and 23 SAS. Training covers all aspects of the regular SBS's 'green' remit excluding Maritime Counter Terrorism (MCT) and underwater ops. SBS(R) forces have deployed alongside their regular counterparts in Afghanistan and Iraq, and are finding plenty to do in the global war on terror.
Unlike the SAS reserve squadrons, those applying for SBS(R) selection must have previous military experience. Those who've racked up 2 years of service in the Royal Marines Reserves can also apply.
Candidates who pass the initial selection phase move onto continuation training alongside regular SBS trainees.
