Did you have to have previous military experience to start with 4 Para at 35?

How's the course going?

He even duped Iranian Embassy siege hero John MacLeese for a time, when MacLeese joined SAS Survival. Needless to say he didn't stay very long once he saw what waltishness there was.

Fellas, it might be worth PMing each other with your Facebook/real names, especially as this is an open forum and you are giving away your names and locations, also a search will bring up your profile pics on FB so just be a bit careful.

Stu, I think Kell Brook really could be the next big thing in boxing as far as talent goes, so u may have lost to a star of the future there. Seems like u got caught cold theremate, which is just one of those things. Plus the fact that he knew u would really be a problem to handle as the fight went ...

Stu's fighting tonight - 30 Jan against Kell Brook for British welterweight title. Tough fight for Stu but I'm picking him to win on points. I've put my bets down already and I think he can do it by using his RM fitness & determination over a guy who is very talented but still has question marks aga...

The great thing is that we are lucky as a nation to have the finest military force in the world, with some great military traditions to look back on. Recent operations in Iraq & Afghanistan show that, and recently the British public seem to be getting behind our armed forces, which is good. Recruiti...

Yeah, that Adam Ballinger book put me off ever thinking about joining SAS(R)! You'd have to really really want it after reading that!

just got a heads-up on 4 Para in London from a friend who has just returned to them after being with the regs - the new recruits are being beasted hard at the moment. In fact there is a lot less emphasis on military skills and more on fitness. The phys sessions are lasting quite a long time on Tuesd...

Ria, actually I did say on a previous post that I would probably wish you good luck. I'm honest enough within myself to know that I'd probably struggle on the Paras 10, otherwise I'd have got through the TA P Coy course when I was in. I'm at ease with myself personally - I'm not cut out to be a para...

Anyone who is serious about joining the Paras ought to do this race. It's a good indication of how fit you are and will give an insight on P Coy itself without actually having to join up (although it's only the 10 miler that one gets to do). Ria - you should do a doc on this race alone - a stab at t...
