Now, before you all have a go at me, I am only posting what the recruiter at my AFCO said to me. Basically, I wish to join the Parachute Regiment. However I said I was thinking of staying on at 6th Form for a couple more months. The recruiter (a Sergeant in the Army Air Corps), said that during this time I could go into the TA in order to get my fitness up and get some experience etc, and then change over to the Paras. I forgot at the time, though, to ask him if I could start my TA training, and if my fitness got a lot better, if I could quit and go in to the regulars at any time during the training process? I'll call them and ask at the earliest time I can but in the meantime can anyone please help at all or is this one for the recruiting Sgt?
