Possibly because he doesn't want to **** about learning how to polish boots and march around like a twat if he doesn't have to?Why?
Why not join the Regular Army, do Phase 1 & Phase 2 see how you like things & go from their.
Then with some maturity, apply for selection to 22, it is not like in the films or on ultimate farce.
Work can be tedious, long, dangerous & you might end up dead at a youngish age!
I met someone who was of the same mind when he decided to join in the UK. He had arrived from overseas where he had served in his own countrys SF ( he had worked with UKSF) and managed to more or less bypass UK basic, with some serious negotiation, on the understanding he was only interested in UKSF selection. He passed.Possibly because he doesn't want to **** about learning how to polish boots and march around like a twat if he doesn't have to?
SASR selection is a brutal year long exercise in patience and exhaustion if you have to hold down a day job at the same time. If however, you have plenty of free time during the week, it might actually be preferable to regular selection in some ways.Many thanks,
Not seeking any back door route- this query is in regards with the recent changes to the DIN relating to seamless transfers between Reserve/Regulars.
Also DIN now states that any reservist can apply to attend regular SFBC. If successful they are then “moved & tracked” by parent unit using RSD’s until Aptitude (min 19 RSDs). Previously all candidates were assigned to the SC from the start of the aptitude phase. This has changed I understand.
Thanks for the sensible answers.
I served for five and half years.Is there any reason why you can’t, or don’t, want to join up as a regular?
Like at university, or have a job you don’t want to let go of?
