33 year old intrested in 4 para

#1 Post by dcevy »

Is trying to join 4 para a big ask for a 33 1/2 year old ? i would not say i am the fittest due to being a smoker , though i am right weight for my height. once i start the ball rolling i will ditch the fags and will be prepared to put in some serious training along with working 50 hrs on a construction site. I REALISE how tough it will be but am willing to give it 110%.

You will need to bear in mind that most of the soldiers will be a lot younger than you and so will many of the NCO's. It is one of those things you will need to think about very carefully be you join

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

How's the course going?
