Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  1. hello

    I have just started a 4para January cadre as a soldier and am wondering (provided i pass ta p coy cic) how long the DIE training will last before i am eligible for mobilization.

    I understand the DIE weekends are run by 4para but i am slightly confused about how long further training will take before i can volunteer for operations.

    Ideally i was hoping to volunteer straight away but i just wanted to clarify how long the DIE training will last, I do not mind doing the extra training but i do want to see if i can make it on operations before the end of next year.

    Also, this is a bit of a side point but are 4para allowed to mobilize with 1para or is that not allowed?

    4 Para are no longer mobilising for routine deployments on operations. Op Herrick is soooo last year's colour.

    Once you have passed CIC and P Coy, your first point of call is your Pl Comd, OC, SPSI or PSI - they will be the ones best placed to advise you.

    The future is very bright for 4 Para, but it doesn't feature Op Herrick.
