They're a Para roled light gun troop, drawn down from 289 Commando Battery in the last set of defence cuts. They might be reroled to Commando under FAS.

As for the number who're jump qualified, I'm not too sure. They're mostly penguins I think....

Not happening - but they might well end up part of a different Bty.

Penny drops!!!!!

Wouldn't like to wear a maroon lid with the wings to match personally!!! (still have to do p-coy don't they?

So do they llok like loosing their para role? Anyone know if everyone gets the chance to go airbourne?

I spent two years with 289 when they were cabbage heads - a fine unit and it was a crying shame they were shafted. They were all para trained even then, and had a reputation for doing more drops than 10 Para. Tell your mate to give it a go - he won't be disapointed.
