63 (SAS) Sigs Sqn

(these below have the right to bid for P Coy but I understand its rare):
395 AD Tp RLC
the remainder of 100 RA

I would like to know where you heard that one from ? I know the Bty is supposed to support 21 Bty but, as far as I know, they don't do the course, and I should know

I know you should know :) . Last I checked (2004) any member of the bty could bid for P coy (due to reinforcing 21 Bty), but none had in donkeys years.

266 (Para) Bty is now 266 (Cdo) Bty based in Bristol. It changed sometime this year.

289 have some top bods there but since they where taken over by 201 things quickly went to rat shit. The title Air Assault Battery is a very loose title with regards to being airborne. P-Coy was scrapped there some time ago. Commando course has not been undertaken there since 289 Commando Battery was folded and turned into 289 (Parachute) Troop, part of 266 Battery (PARA). Which, as was discussed above, also doesn't exist anymore.
Hope this helps. TBM
