  1. Hi all,

    As stated I've just been accepted for the Paras and I begin phase 1 relatively soon! however I have a girlfriend and I was jsut wondering, after the iniitial 6 week no weekends off, what home coming time is like and if phones are allowed to be used.

    Also after I pass training and get stationed at Colchester what sort of transport would be the best to get back to manchester the fastests way possible? that question applies to Catterick too!

  2. How attached are you to your girlfriend?

    Genuine question.
  3. The fastest way would be a personal helicopter from the rugby pitches, good luck my friend.
  4. Very mate.
  5. Do one you crap hat
  6. Well good luck - you're going to be very busy and focussed on your training if you really want to do well. She might not like being put on the back burner.
  7. Train?
