Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know the average time frame for joining the paras. From application to doing the PRAC, and if you pass that then how long till you start basic training. If I was to apply in June next year, how long would I have to wait? Also,does anyone know what the minimum weight requirement for the Paras is, because the Marines is 65 kg and the RAF Regiment is 62 kg, I'm 62 kg myself.
     
  2. A year is a long time so just be patient, dont worry about your weight, a nice mortar base plate will help to bring you down to earth :)
     
  3. There's a whole forum dedicated to people asking questions about joining up, or you could try the Army website or go and ask at your AFCO.
