Reason i ask is that i was origionally going for infantry (2PWRR) but my recruitment officer is adamant i try for paras so i said i would give it a shot.
Ive read about how tough para selection is but wanted to know if anyone here has any first hand experience or advice?

My dad is a captain in 7th now, and has been in and out since I was born, do if you have any specific questions I can find out what you want.

bit of advice join an infantery reg first so you can get a feel for what your in for then transver to the paras you will still have to do the trainning but at least you will be phisicaly fit for it

if i hide maybe the stupid people will go away
I'm so gorgeous they want to put me under arrest

Isnt that compulsary anyway? i thought you complete the basic infantryman course then move onto para selection afterwards, if you fail that then you simply return to your infantry reg.
I may have that completely wrong but thats how i interpreted what my recruitment officer said so i stand to be corrected :D

paras are f***** in the head mate, unless you've actually talked to any and have any similarities with them, don't bother, if you want to go better than infantry try for the guards.

Hmm 2 mates (one in infantry and one in artillery) said similar thing along those lines but then proceeded to say i should fit right in then.
Not sure what that says about me or their opinions on me :huh:

I'm pretty sure the sfw's, are only for the special forces. The para's, as far as I know don't have them
