    Maybe you could post your age? i suspect some people are already rubbing their hands at the possible answers, your age might get them to behave...
     
  3. 24 hours, same as everybody elses average day.
     
  4. Wine, women, song and killing, not necessarily in that order.

    Lots of running carrying heavy things, digging holes and sleeping outside in the rain....
     
  6. ...and not necessarily the enemy...


    (depending on the mood in the Traff at the time..)
     
  7. Each other ive heard, in a serious way, will they still perform like an infantry unit except with parachuting added in?
     
  8. Not a good reply, standby.
     
  9. ..you got to SLEEP Schaden - kinell..
     
  10. ...def.NOT each other - who'd carry the Gimpy?


    ..besides remarks like that could well get you constant care from the QA's
     
  11. You really ARE looking for a date with a QA - in the worst possible way..?
     
  12. i was asking the question in a serious way not the first part
     
  13. If this isn't a wind up - google 'The Parachute Regiment' - and read EVERYTHING - TWICE.

    Then if you are serious - phone a Recruiter - numbers there for you - and they will call you back - that will then give you your answers...

    AFC = Air Force Cadets?? Try ACF - probably more useful..
     
  14. AFC= Army foundation college, as for ACF my nearest one is quite far away so i went with ATC
