Hello Gents, new here and after advice. Will probably get smashed for this but, never mind. I'm wanting to join either 4 PARA or RMR. Due to circumstances at home I'm unable to join the regulars. I am in a position where I could definitely commit to reserves though, and probably should have years ago. If I was to join the regs it would be Parachute Regiment for me. The problem I have deciding is due to hearing that 4 PARA lads who aren't ex-regs are looked upon with disdain. Whereas I understand that RMR are less so, because of passing the same tests. It may seem stupid but assuming I successfully join either unit, I hope I can serve for years and one day look back on a proud achievement. I can commit a lot of time to this and would be keen on spending a lot of time with the regs where possible. Even possibly a FTRS in the future. Always had my eye on the Parachute Regiment, but not as a second class member. Which is leading me more towards the RMR. I just wouldn't want to be in a group I've worked hard for, to be looked down upon. Does anyone have any experience of either unit? I understand I would have to prove myself as an individual regardless. Thanks.
