Theoretically, it itsn't impossible for members of the RN to join the SBS or SAS if they tick all the correct boxes is it?

Just a thought.

I know Dinger. He did a bit of a round robin from selous scouts, SASR then 49 selection. I believe he only just scraped through though. Must have been those non-issue boots he was wearing!!

Maybe I haven't been hanging around in the right places but I have never heard of '49 Para' - but I have heard and know of various people who have gone over to serve with our Balaclaved bretheren.

Were those the same wets he used to do for the box of toys? After harbours...when at rivers or SSD's?

Mod Edit: Guys, bit of decorum please. References to 49 to be kept to a minimum, perlease.

We don't want everyone talking about 49.

.
right i give up

i thought we all liked 69ers,

someone once told me that 42 was the key number

have we combined the two to make 49 the magic number now or what!!

No, you're correct.

Just thought I'd give a straight answer to your double-negative question & put everyone out of their misery.

(The 49 Para bit is probably made up).
