I have heard that the TA LI Coy in Wakefield are soon to change roles and become Airborne Engineers? Is anybody in a position to confirm this rumour? I would imagine that most of the soldiers in Wakefield joined to be an infantryman and not an engineer? If the Coy are to re-role to become para trained then why dont they go and join 4 PARA who have a TA Centre just North of Wakefield? I know that they would all be welcome and once they have passed P-Company they would be able to slot into the Coy in the same rank as when they left the LI without having to retrain and requalify all of the NCOs.
