Unless you do really well on the assesment then you can go straight to Hereford for basic training.
They even have a boat shed for indoor foot drill.

been playing call of duty 4 eh?

If you go into your local recruiting office in all DPM ( camoflauge clothing ) and say you have been training for years and say you are intrested in joining the SAS as you reckon you can show THEM how its done you can join them.

Let us know how it goes mate! most of us on here have been in the SAS for about 40 years now

naa, your winding me up! why would they use a boat shed for "foot drill"?
Its true, its because the water absorbs alot of the noise made from banging feet and thus they get less complaints from the locals. Common sense really if you thing about it.

PARA basic is about 6 month's and then selection around 10-12.Personally I would suggest that as you know what you want you should go to your nearest ATCO and speak to the RAF recruiter (SAS is special AIR service).Tell him you want to join the SAS andthat you enjoy traveling.You should get your joining instructions from Hereford in no more than two months.Good luck.

ok still think your winding me up but anyway. is it only paras that become sas? There's someone on my college course who used to be in royal logistical core, could you go sas from them?

Are they drilling in the red or yellow one nowadays?
I believe it is the Red one currently but I may be wrong!

A one Peter Mcaleese passed selection at 19 in 1962, so after 2 years service in his case!!
Seriously the para depot will be more then enough to think about for the time being. At the acio DO NOT say you want to join the SAS cause if you go to the depot and they read that on your file they will laugh and you will probably get stick for it(they might assume you think para reg is 2nd best) and obviously do not say it at the depot either.

You could but seeing as you can't even spell the name of the corps I think you are probably far too retarded to get in... on the other hand the RLC does have Ammo Techs.
