Ok here I go again. Probably sounding silly asking questions that probably have obvious answers. ANYWAY - I applied to join the Paras. Did the BARB, got 62. Medical is fine. Now doing my Selection run pretty soon at Pirbright. Average 1.5mile run-time is 09:09 (based on about 30 runs) and all strength tests pretty much easy for me to pass. So here it is... Although I'm joining, I had no idea (until today) that Para 4 is a TA detatchment right? I wanted some full-time shit with the Paras after I pass basic training and this is where they're gonna be putting me if I complete P Coy? A weekend thing? PLEASE someone shed some light on this for me before I go and make a fool out of myself in front of my recruiting Sgt and request a pre-entry transfer. I know I should have opened my eyes a bit more to what I wanted, but I was told this is the hardest stuff in the Infantry. I wanted it because people said it was difficult - thus logically meaning it would be worth it in the end right? Well now I'm confused. Info is much appreciated.
