Transferring to Paras.

#1
If you're line infantry and want to have a crack at transferring to the para's is this usually allowed? Has anybody done it on here or know of anybody who has?

You're wrong pal, i do have a f*cking scooby what I want to be. I'm 100% commited to The Rifles. I'm not saying I want to transfer to paras, i'm asking if it can be done. As your post said "close mouth, open ears"

My lord, you are a sensitive little soul arent you ?! You can bleat on all you like about PCoy this AACC that, you have more pressing engagements ahead, but what would I know ? :D Have a coke and a smile you lemon ! Your in for a lot worse soon x x x x

Edited to add : course it can be done, anything can 'be done' in terms of keeping guys in on strength as opposed to saying no and running the risk of a perfectly capable bod not rejoining. Your still a beefer

This guy makes alot of sense.
My theory is you've made your choice
And signed your contract. Infantry is
Alot of people's 1st choice job. Id be
Very grateful to be in the position your in.
ONce your contract expires, Everythings an
Option.

This thread was started as a question in general. At no point have I said that this is what i want to do, people have just made the assumption and thats led to their negative comments, just a shame that some people have the natural tendancy to be negative. On a more posotive note I have had my question answered and i now look forward to starting at ITC Catterick and going on to serving with The Rifles.

Bataz if your not thinking about it why ask. I assume your decision to join the Rifles was a considered and well though out one in the first place? Paras are an excellent reg to join, not something to join though because it is fashionable

The reason I asked is because I was told by a para instructor that I should apply after having a conversation with him.

I don't need a reason, I can ask whatever I like on a public forum. And as always thorugh the majority of negative responses there are always the 1 or 2 posotive responses that help and give a straight answer without wanting to know the why's, where's, what's and how's. I didn't know it was fashionable to join the paras, but then what do in know about fashion.

You're probably better off not replying to the bone posts; as well as saving your blood pressure it also saves the thread from becoming a car crash.
