And happy new year to you Ninja_Stoker. I am not trying to wind people up. I just find it odd that people seem to slag them off, yet they seem to be good enough to support special forces. Yes i will most lickely if get selected for the rm will go into the corps rather than the RAF regiment

Best of luck Frankie, hope you achieve your ultimate aim.

Incidentally, everyone potentially acts in support of the UKSF in some way shape or form, so we could all claim likewise: be it the chef cooking scran for them or the mechanic fixing a rigid raider.

Good point never thought of it in that way

I do understand what you guys are saying but the RAF regiment must be good because on their website it say's they they support the special forces just like the para's and rm.

Special forces Support group basically consists of 1 Para (the whole reg). about 80 bootnecks and a handfull of Raf reg. When support for SF in the past 15 years think Bosnia onwards the role was given to a particular unit and it was always Bootnecks or Paras. When i was in Bravo coy back in 2001 we were doing SF support. My section was doing chinook escorts in and out of Afghan from Pakistan. The Raf Reg were living in the same hangar as us and their job was to secure the local airfield whilst we would fly off on task. They were dripping all the time about why we were doing their job instead of them and it was a fair one, But it was no secret that SF didnt want them to do it because they are shite. So unless their gobbing off about the handfull of Walts that are working with SFSG then their claim to be Support for SF is a bit feeble.

By the way, Raf reg types get filled in really easy, Ive seen the falling plates in action when i was ashore in Uxbridge. Fannies!
