TA P Coy

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by eSeL, Feb 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. Our unit has been told that we're being offered this due to being re-rolled; however, when I've asked for information from either the PSI or OC about possible dates, I get blank looks. Does anyone know when this will be available to non Para TA?
     
  2. Maybe not exact dates but aiming off should get something from it.
    You'll know exact dates once you've done it. Usual story.

    Look at the Para Regt website for linkis to P Coy. It does not give the dates, but a good insight nevertheless. It runs as all arms for all TA with a Para role. Once your role is confirmed, off you go!
     
  4. The TA P Coy is open to anybody but the wings course is only for people in Airborne units, well thats what i have been told, I have p coy in 11 days, wish me luck!
     
  5. Until TA FAS comes out nobody can start any of the training courses which will equip them for their new role.

    A little bit more ‘hurry up and wait’ from our beloved army :roll:
