Example text

I would set the bearing when we started the patrolling and then by hand I would point until the scout identified the same object that I did, whether it be a tree, a bamboo clump or whatever. He knew that’s where he was going and where he had to finish up—but not his route. He would then use his instincts and start to meander. When he stopped, everyone stopped. He was the guy who was going to keep us in or out of danger. If he decided to stop for ten minutes no-one walked up to him and said, ‘Hey listen, you know, let’s get a move on mate’.

And we were all ready to go and then they would take us back and sit us back down and the plane would land. 33 ON PASSING The day finally arrives when the men are standing on the grass parade ground at Swanbourne, accepted by the selection board and having passed their basic parachute course. The Commanding Officer of the SAS Regiment hands the soldier a sandy-coloured beret with the SAS winged dagger badge with attached motto of ‘Who Dares Wins’ and a blue lanyard for his left shoulder. They know they are the chosen ones.

Once they have been interviewed by the selection board, they are told to report at a specified time, when the next selection course will be conducted. If a soldier is looked upon by the recruiting panel as likely material, he is asked to pass a basic fitness test and other specialty SAS barriers and then attend a selection course at Swanbourne Barracks in Perth, Western Australia. And so the screening and filtering process begins. A selection course is conducted to ensure that only men with the ‘right stuff’ get through because the training demands and the nature of SAS operations are very demanding—and expensive.
