4 Para TASO

Discussion in 'OTC and ACF' started by Gremlin0790, Jun 10, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know anything about TASOing to 4 Para at all? The reason I ask, and also because I can't access the search function for some reason, is that I'm going into my second year of OTC and looking for more of a challenge. First year has been great, a brilliant stepping off point, but due to a mandatory year abroad in my third year I'd like to get the ball rolling attach to a more serious a unit. My first choice would be INT CORPS, but as I have been advised before, they don't seem to partake in the TASO program. My second choice of corps is the inf, but I'm not to inspired by the local SCOTS battalion, but 4 Para definitely catch my eye.

    Do 4 Para even do such a program? How does it work? Obviously I don't expect to rock up and expect a maroon beret, I intend to work hard at it and I'm very fit as it is. I know about Ex AIRBORNE STUDENT, I'd kill to do it but for family reasons I won't make it. I assume I'd have to do some form of P Company?

    Cheers for any advice.

  3. As per, I sugggest you speak to your unit for a contact. Did you take the chance to speak to one of our ex cadets who was at the function on Sat and went to 4 Para??
