hijacking the thread slightly here, ive applied to do the Military Gap Year with 4 PARA. im 18 and have served for 1 year with the TA. i was wondering if anyone on here has done/is doing the MGY, and could give me some basic info (from a Tom's perspective) on the scheme, alternatively, if The_Duke reads this, do you have any info as you seem to be a font of knowledge?
