ITC Catterick Capbadges and training

#1
When you get to ITC do recruits wear a generic beret and capbadge for training or do you immediately get the capbadge of your chosen regiment?
Or do you get your regimental beret and capbadge in phase 2?

Also, does everyone do exactly the same training for phase 1 or does it depend on your chosen infantry regiment?

Any info appreciated.

For the first six weeks you wear the DPM peaked cap, then when you complete the drill test you get to wear your regmental insignia. PARA rcts wear a green backing behind their badge to show they are rcts but wear the maroon beret.

There are three regular rct courses at Catterick (except the Gurkhas who doa 1 year specific course):

- The Combat Infantry Course;
- The Combat Infantry Course (Para);
- The Combat Infantry Course (Guards);

The CIC is the basic 26 week course; CIC(Para) is 26 weeks + P Coy in the middle; CIC (Guards) is 26 weeks + extra drill.
