Para Reg Officer Recruitment

Discussion in 'Officers' started by krakatoa, May 15, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know how the formation of the SFSG will affect how para reg recruits officers. i.e are officers recruited straight into 1 para (SFSG) as well as 2 and 3 para or are they brought across from other regiments?

    I'm asking due to the fact that I am aspiring to become a Para officer. Hopefully the formation of the SFSG hasn't resulted in fewer places for officers to go into Para Reg since there are now only two battalions to recruit into as opposed to three.

    Can anyone shed some light on the subject?


  2. I'm assuming that the same system applies across the ranks, which means that you will Commission into 2 or 3, with the opportunity to transfer into 1 at some future point in your career.

    To the best of my knowledge, this is correct. First tour 2Lts will go to 2 or 3, with internal postings across the Bns as normal afterwards.
