A few months ago I failed my British army medical for eczema, the eczema is now gone and I am still interested in a career in the armed forces however I can not re apply to British army for 3 years. I originally wanted to join the Parachute regiment in the British army, so I was interested in the 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment. I was interested in the Para's as I wanted to join an 'elite' infantry unit, is the 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment at a similar standard, high quality training etc? I also have an interview with the Royal Marines coming up but not I am not sure if they will know that I failed the army medical. One last question, can you shoot left handed in the FFL? I know in Royal Marines and British Army they do not allow you to, but I have heard the Famas can be used both ways. Any advice would be much appreciated.
