Hi all quick question about the Paras and Colstreamers

#1
Hi all,

Aside from the usual banter what's going to go on, I was wondering which to go for. I did my IDST the other day but unfortunately was out by 58 seconds for the Para's but my Sgt said I could carry on and make the Coldstreamers my first choice, I said no... anyway I'm wondering amongst all you lot who know about the Army etc which would you prefer? Para's or Coldstream Guards? I know they're both tough regiments with a good history but which do you favour with?

Cheers.

That depends. Do you want to jump out of a plane which is going to land safely anyway or would you rather wear a big furry hat?

Well... both lol. but the Para's are seen as a tougher mroe respected force, hwoever the CG's have a very long past sooo I'm in the middle of the road! :S

would you rather wear a furry hat or a furry jockstrap? why dont you really push the boat out and join the RAF regt.

that way you can kill two birds with one stone, you can be an airborne god and spend lots of time staging on.

Gliders and parachutes are not quite the same thing. Sorry if that seems picky!

Go for either regt. The paras are into parachuting just as much as the CGs are to stagging on the Thames in December.
