ex Para officers please reply

How much action (as opposed to office work etc.) can a platoon commander Lt. on exercise/operations expect?
Are there any missions the Paras might be involved in that involve less than a full platoon?

Infantry platoon commanders do a lot of field work. The mainly 'office work' normally normally starts at Major depending on what paths you follow. But don't be put off. There are many thrilling jobs for senior officers that don't include running around fields digging holes.
