Steve a combat Signaller is something in the Army. All Signallers in the RM's are Commandos first. They serve in all area's of the corps as do all GD ranks, you will find more GD ranks in the echelons than Signallers. Signallers are involved in all aspects of the Marines they deploy down to Troop le...

If your only goal is the SAS then the Para's are as good as any other regiment really, but not my choice as the Para's are very blinkered... But if you are thinking long term join a Corps as this will give you the opportunity to serve in many operational areas and give you a “Bigger” view of the mil...
