lenin why do you think paras are harder??
the royal marines selection is more gruelling and the training is longer and designed to handpick the motivated people who have the fitness and will to carry on to the end of the 32 weeks
paras is a bit different still a very good regiment and hard to get into but the royal marine commandos just tops it off
research it and of course it helps when you have mates in the marines
