    I've got a feeling that it's the Paras for you, but give it a try and see what it says.

  8. If you are serious in yoru confusion between the two why not ask about a joint role down at your local careers office.

    There is a unit called 'Jungle Light reconasaince Royal Airborne commando's' They take direct entry's from 17 to 19 1/2 regardless of background and ability to spell.

    My brother in law is serving with them now an enjoys skydiving and rubbing the barnacles off the bottom off landing craft.

    Upper body strength is required, but a sharp brain, keen eye and stare that would frighten a rhino are all tested at your Local ACIO.

    When you attend the ACIO and you make serious enquiries regarding this unit you may find yourself swept to one side and treated a little differently to those joining the normal run of the mill stuff.

    Good luck, hope this helps.
