  1. So I'm 15, 16 in a matter of days, and I'm just about to do my final interview and then ADSC.
    I've been lusting after the maroon beret for about a year before I even applied but given my run time I doubt I can get it down low enough. I'm just a naturally slow runner no matter how much interval running I do.
    So PARA being my first choice I need a second choice. I'm still going to put all my effort into getting in to the maroon machine but I need a backup non-the-less.
    I've been leaning towards 1 Royal Anglian (I couldn't tell you why, I just have) but there are so many regiments out there that do seemingly the same thing, so I need help choosing.
    My local is RIFLES as I live in Cornwall but I'm not really drawn to them.
    Seriously, any advice in narrowing my choices?
    If knowing parts of my background would perhaps help just ask what you need and I'll answer, cheers in advance.

  7. The REME are always looking for young, keen soldiers?
    Plenty of trades to go for and relevant to civy qualifications etc?
  8. RAF rise above the rest, plus nicer beret!!!!!
