Richards was called up for National Service three months after he began his studies at the Royal College of Art, London. He trained originally as a sapper (a military engineer) in Northumberland, Wiltshire and Suffolk, but had his heart set on becoming a paratrooper. This wish was eventually granted when he was accepted for training in 591 (Antrim) Parachute Squadron based at Ringway in Manchester.
