Re: Being Gay in the army -What is it REALLY like, truthfull

To be honest who should win in a fight? Foul mouthed squadies or well trained Marines...? I think I know who (I'll give you a clue *marines*) Depends if the Marine is totally naked, covered in baby oil and comes at you with a raging hard on. I'd surrender straight away. Or distract him and knick hi...

Re: WHAT DOES PARA JOE MEAN ?

No, never heard of parajoe either. I've heard of 'paragraph' if that's any help? That's the chart thingy they use to show how well paras do on their jumps. Oh, and 'paradise'. That's a specially adapted dice to be used on board games. (Has numbers written on rather than dots, as it can be hard for s...

Re: Eyesight

You will need to be able to read 6mm print from a distance of 6 metres, aided with spectacles if necessary. You will also be tested for colour blindness. If you are deuteropic or propanopic (the two most common forms of colour blindness) you will not be recruited as an electrician. Soldiers are acce...

We're not doctors on here so don't take anything we say as absolute gospel. All we can do is give our opinion based on previous experience and all you can do is fill out the forms and see what happens... However..

Re: Infantry regiment choices

If the para role flicks your switch why go for that via the Guards route? Too much bullshit, marching, ceremonial practice, parades, more marching, brushing bearskins, boot bulling sweat nights... and between time you get some infantry drills thrown in. Why not go down the Engineers route? You come ...

Re: Laser eye Surgery

As above, but I think you'll find the restrictions which apply to your eye surgery are consistent across the forces. btw - What sort of treatment did you have? Advice I've given previously was that LASEK surgery is something that military medic types are more comfortable with accepting, as the corne...
