The United Kingdom command for Special Forces has been forced to advertise for the first time ever in an attempt to attract new recruits for a new communications unit created to support covert operations. The SAS (Special Air Service) and SBS (Special Boat Service) are reported to be in need of more operators as they face increased challenges at home and across the globe. The full-page advert placed in the Army’s Soldier magazine states that male and female applicants will be ‘selected for their technical know-how, tactical abilities and physical robustness’. New candidates need to qualify for the team by completing a ‘severe’ six-month training course, although no details are given about what this involves.
