    When you do either the all arms commando or p coy, do you stay with your reg or do you get transferred to another?

    All depends on what unit you are with at the time.

    Well the courses are not aimed at badge collectors, typically you will pass the course and do a posting with the airborne unit or commando bde that falls under your Corps if available.

    I'm joining the royal engineers through junior entry, how long will I have to wait before I can do either the commando course or P coy?

    also, is there a minimum age?
     
  5. You can go straight after your Combat Engineer B3 course, and no age limit, just a sense of humour :twisted:

    can you go from a line infantry regiment, do p-coy and join 2 or 3 Para?

    or do you have to do the full Para Depot Holiday?

    SO when you pass either all arms courses do you stop working with all the lads you were with before and go to a different reg?
     
  9. Usually you get a new posting within 3 months, if you come from a different regiment. Or if it's straight from training you go straight into 3 commando or 16 air assault.
