i cant find any good information anywer on this SF, can anyone give some because wikipedia is useless with these
Very good read, a chap I know was from 14 Company. Interesting stuff. Training was tough especially when he gets jumped on for interrogation.There's a book out a few years ago called The Operators, written by a guy called James Rennie. It details the selection of people for 14 Int, which was the predecessor for SRR, and their subsequent operations in NI.
The ISBN number is 0-7126-7730-5 and was first published by Century in 1996. Maybe still in print and definately worth a read.
Did not know that! Although if they were just an "upgrade" from 14 Signals, it does make sense. Still, they are *special* forces, would have thought they would do SF selection - especially if stories are to be believed about them getting caught behind enemy lines...Don't think they do SF selection. Plenty of women are in it.
Just a rough guess, I would say signals and the intelligence corps??On the subject of SRR. Where do the guys mainly come from? Not actually expecting an answer here but oh well...
So mainly SBS is marines, SAS is paras, SRR?
They have to do SF selection, but it is more sorting through intelligence than actually recce-ing things/people/places I am led to believe.I would relate them to the secret services more than SF, as you don't have to do SF training, as was said ladies are in it.
Im not planning to do all this stuff, but if I was, I would want the offensive ops with the proper SF teams.
