  1. Hi,

    I've recently decided to attempt joining 4 para (in White City). I have a pretty decent idea of what the training involves but am interested to know how often they actually accept new recruits. I have a feeling I've just missed a cadre and will have to wait for the next one. Can anyone confirm this and if so any idea when the next one is? Apologies if these questions get thrown around this forum a lot.

    Cheers in advance

    The next cadre starts in January, but you will be very lucky to get on that one. You need to do the paperwork, medical, TARS, RG8 etc before you start and Christmas leave is working against you.

    Call the TA centre tomorrow morning and ask to speak to the ROSO. It is worth a try, otherwise you will be in the holding platoon until May/June.
