At the time the training feels like shit, it's tough but that's how it suppose to be. My section corporal even said to me and the rest of my section when I wasn't there that I could have cut the mustard and earnt that green beret. A moment of madness I must have gone through when getting that form stamped. Anyway, it's too late now. I'm a civvy and I'm looking to re-join the armed forces. Thinking about the Army now. Not sure whether the infantry or something like Royal Engineers which are again soldiers first. Does anyone know how long the basic training in the Army is? Obviously the Para's is 26 weeks but I don't feel ready for another task like that yet, maybe in the future though. Obviously it's my choice what I do in life, but anyone got any experience in the forces and anyone got good suggestions about what to chose?
