Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. can members of guards para go on selection for pathfinders or do you need to transfer to 2 para first
  2. Pathfinders are tri-service, all-arms.

    Everyone can go for it, less Reserves.
  3. i thought the tri service selection thing was done away with a while ago :? , il take your word for it , cheers
  4. I assumed (thus making an ass out of u but mostly me) this hadn't changed.

    My bad.
  5. lol so the current situation is that pathfiner platoon only draws from para reg + attached personel , or both of us dont know and are guessing ?
  6. It's still tri-service.
  7. My nephew I Irish Gds :? just done pre-selection if that helps ?
  8. The section on the PF Plt in the Summer 09 edition of Pegasus states;

    "....of the twenty seven candidates who initially arrived, five were selected to serve with the Pathfinders. Joining Pathfinders in March were soldiers from 2 Para, 2 Royal Anglian, 7 Para RHA, 14 Signals Regt and 216 (Para) Signals Sqn"

    .....if that helps

    I take it that Crabs, and wannabe Crabs, aren't too bothered by punctuation, (or indeed spelling). If you're trying for sarcasm, try harder, otherwise try harder.
