Question 1 How did you choose your regiment because i just cant do it, i cant decide between 1 rifles or 2 para, ill tell you my cirumstances and thoughts so that you can correct me if im wrong and make it easier for you to help me choose ... 2 para : - The elite - Less ceremonial duties than rifles - First to be deployed - Easier to access UKSF(I think) BUT - Barracks in Essex, Oh god !! 1 rifles : - Commando training available - Closer to home - Wide range of roles in 4 battalions (I think) BUT - At a disadvantage compared to paras if applying for SF (I think) for some reason im scared im gonna regret whatever choice i make, if anyone has any tips for choosing and any other facts that could help my decision. Thanks in advance. Question 2 Oh and for some reason in my mind i belive that i would achive my full potential more in The Rifles than i would in the paras because the paras are very popular, therefore giving me a greater chance of being overlooked in terms of skills such as NCO qualities etc. Can you tell me if this may be true or if it is just my wrong opinion. Thanks.
