PMA mate. ;) No use going for something you don't want, if you aren't fit enough put the date back.

Thought it was pretty sobering (said when pissed :drinking:), especially the bloke talking about stabbing someone with his bayonet and having to finish him off. Not nice stuff.

I know you need 26 (or was it 24? :drinking:) for the Parachute Regiment so don't see why it would be different for other infantry regiments. As the average seems to be 50+ I imagine you will have done that. ;)

How so? :-? It's just a different role is it not, something to consider if you have the qualifications and fancy a more 'manager' based role? I wasn't aware that having a commision made you a better soldier.

Also DO NOT use your arms, keep them at your sides at all times moving using a 'wriggling' motion like a worm. This is difficult at first but is efficient and prevents detection by the enemy as the water movement is less violent.

Plenty of converters can be found in about 10 seconds using a search engine, hardly worth a new topic! :P I was going to better you by a decimal point or two Druadan but I kept getting slighty different results. :( Yeah, I'm bored and very sober! :D
