have just passed selection weekend for 4 para. <wuppi do iknow> iam just wondering if any one could give me a brief or detailed account of what the cadre is going to consist off. i was a late recruit so im pretty much in the dark any tips or advice welcome even shit ones thanks
My son was lucky.He was on a Gap Year Commission,and jumps folowed almost immediately after P Coy.However,he tells me that a number of people he knows in 4 Para,have waited more than 12 months,after completing P Coy(at least in the White City Coy),for the jumps course.
It can easily be 12 months depending on course availablity, the soldiers ability to take time off work, weather/aircraft availability during the course etc. Many will do a tour before they get on their jumps course - just like in the regular Bns.
