You apply for it, as you do for 'normal' selection; aptitude tests etc, then the selection course itself.

'Recce' in SRR is generally a different role to what most people understand - it's not the same as an infantry/RM recce troop or Pathfinder platoon. So it's something you'd have to find out about once you're in to see if it's for you.

Hello, congrads on you deciding to join the army.

Firstly, i would like to address the fact that your not in the services as yet. Therefore, have no idea of the way you'll react to training and courses to come in the future, you might find your self maturing and the special forces doesn't seem so glamorous after seeing the real army. In relations to your question, you can go to breifing courses and see if your still interested. May i point out, the OC have to sign off your papers to recommend you for even the briefing course. In other words you need to be eligible.( all round good soldier)
