    I belive (I was told by my mate down the pub), that as long as you can see the colour of the boathouse at 100 yards then you can join.

    What is even more amazing, is that in the eye test for 49 Para, you have to be able to see the colour at 150 yards..............

    Meaning, it doesn't matter if you are cross-eyed and have scribbled all over your body in permanent marker if you haven't even joined up yet. You must serve 3 years before even applying for SF selection.

    Concentrate on your joining process, fitness, education, and get through training. Get to your first unit and have some fun.

    Join the Army first, then try to better yourself. If you "justwannabeSAS", then just fuck off.

    I havent had my ink yet cos of this I was meant to be gettin it next week.

    And to give you an idea of how mild my colourblindness is I went almost 16 years before I found out and I only found out at selection.

    And the reason I wanna join SAS is cos my great grandad was in it when it was formed as the Long Range Dessert Group.

    Tatttoos are fine but you won't get in because your mother and father are brother and sister. Can you play the banjo?
