I know there is another thread somewhere on this subject (just cant find the damn thing!), but I was wondering the following... 1 Para has now become the SFSG, and is apparently already deployed on Ops in Baghdad. This follows on their support of Op Barras in 2000. Fair enough, but my question is this. Did the entirety of 1 Para re role to SF as a oner, or was there any kind of selection process to take the best candidates from all 3 para bn's? If not, is it feasible for there now to be some absolute mongs (and the paras do have them!) now wondering around as part of the highly regarded UKSF? Or a recruit fresh out of training who was lucky to be posted just before the change was announced? This is not a question borne out of sour grapes, but if the latter is true, i am sure there are some 2 or 3 para bods spitting mad with it.... Anyone in the know, without being naughty?
