Great gen, thanks @Chelonian The differing age requirements between SBS (R) and SAS (R) is interesting. The two units clearly have two very different roles. SBS (R) sit within the UKSF directorate which provides a joint special operations task force headquarters, and is commanded by the Director Special Forces. SAS (R) sit within the 1st Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Brigade. 1 ISR bde has responsibility for all British Army ISR capabilities. It’s worth acknowledging that, statistically, there will be members of this forum who are capable of joining one of these units.
