just got a heads-up on 4 Para in London from a friend who has just returned to them after being with the regs - the new recruits are being beasted hard at the moment. In fact there is a lot less emphasis on military skills and more on fitness. The phys sessions are lasting quite a long time on Tuesday nights and the PTIs are showing no mercy.
What with the current climate, the 4 Para lads are in demand quite a lot so the PT side has been upped a notch in order to make sure they are ready, so anyone who is joining might need to get their fitness increased.
Remember, knowledge is power, unless you forget it all.
