I completed P Company in Summer of 1983, 493 platoon, para reg. It was the last 3 day P Company, before the "diluted" (no offence) one week one came into play. Do any of the lads from 493 want to reminisce? My memory of Gillies (one of the fittest most switched on lads) crashing out at the start of the steeplechase? assault course? Stands out the most for me. I got a "pass" gutted; as only a pass+ was a "real pass"! But went on to 3 Para and better things.
