23 Engineer Regiment.

Just wondering if you can go straight into them or do you have to go into another Unit first?

Also, what area, eg electrics, carpentry etc, is a Parachute Engineer specialised in? I couldn't really find the answer to this on the Army website.

Cheers guys.

voluenteer in basic training and go there soon as you finish your trade training

anything other than Armoured. You can go and do the course if your Armoured (well thats what they've told a couple of lads in my sqn) but there's not much call for chucking the T2's from aircraft so after passing you'd get to take your shiny wings back to Ripon, Tidworth or Germany where your trades needed

Cheers guys.

Can go for it between your B3 and trade course if time allows.

Er.... parachutes :wink:
How interesting.

The only 23 Regt (ex 9 Sqn) lad I know is more interested in shagging birds and surfing. Crack on fella!!!
