I am hoping that someone can help with my question,as i have searched over and over for an answer with no success! I am wondering what the difference is between 1 battalion rifles, and para reg? i know the Paras are air assault and that the 1 rifles are joining 3cdo brigade,though i want to know what the difference is between not just the recruit training but what they actually do during operations, When the paras hit the ground are they really much different from the Rifles role? This is not a slaggin post either,the reason i ask is because im currently in two my which regiment to join! Any help would be much appreciated.
