What additional training have you received?

I thought 6 miles was April onwards? The MATT2 as laid down this year specifies 4 miles in not less than 57'30.

After April we go to 6, then 8 in 2008.

Wasn't 8 what we used to do?

It's 4 for bounty this training year ie til April, 6 if you're deploying and then next year as PTP says.
Not for us it is not!

CO's directive states that 4 Para will train to MATT level 1 standard. MATT 2 will be tested at 8 miles in 2 hours, but the Bn will train to 10 miles in 2 hours.

Only exceptions for Para Regt cap badge personnel are elderly (as defined in MATTs) or med downgraded who may be given an exception by the TM.

Other attached arms are at MATT 2 standard.

Max benefit, and the blokes love it!

BRL,

The comment above was mine, and our downgrades tend to be exactly that - properly medically down graded and often for lengthy periods. Broken femurs etc from parachuting tend to do that to you.

What could be described as "short term unofficial downgrading" gets short shrift, and besides, there are many opportunities to do the CFT in a year. If someone misses all of them without a proper medical review and downgrading, then bye bye bounty.
