What happens if you are infantry and do the P Coy course

Yes we are all moving, happily all the local stuff around us is moving along with us at the roughly the same speed, sadly us UK residents are not knocking off 1,000 miles an hour like equitorial people.
Based on original lyrics penned by Eric Idle, we're all shifting much faster than a mere 1,000 mph, Shirley?

Yes... and if we don't have a point in the cosmos that we can call "stationary point Zero",we will just have to be happy to be abused by the forces we are currently aware of.

Now back to P Coy, just take your brain out, put it in a safe place, and be really really fit.

I've seen a fair few ptis wearing wings/daggers, and not all of them were para reg. Seems if you want to do the courses become a pti first
 
It says on the army website Job Roles > Infantry and underneith says you can go on to be a "Parachutist or Commando etc." So say if I went into Yorkshire Regiment and did that course then would that mean I could wear my Para wings/Commando Dagger would still be Yorkshire Regiment and Part of 4 Para or Commando Reserves I have just wondered I am using these as examples.
Technically, if you do P Company then jumps but not in an airborne PiD, receiving airborne pay, you are not supposed to wear wings; only bulb. As already pointed out, once you have served in an Airborne PiD you can wear the wings in perpetuity.

However, the chances of completing both are slim to nil on either!
 
As Infantry normal soldier or
Can you do all arms comando course and para course and how long Is the para course I was in the navy for few months didn’t like it so now joining army want more
Would that help you get in the direction of the sas if you had both of them ?
 
Do both courses at once to save time.

While your doing a TAB do a Yomp at the same time, get awarded two berets, wings, daggers and march off the square in both directions.
 
The parachute course is a month long, the commando course six. The commando course is the easiest option as it is less condensed - a month's work being stretched out over half a year. Of consequence there's much more free time and weekends off. It's a no-brainer.

The AACC is six months long? I knew they had extended it from 8 to 13 weeks at one point, but six months seems excessive. I suspect you are wrong or talking about the Reserves.

A map of Hereford would help you get in the direction of the SAS.
 
AACC is not six months long.

Q1. Yes if your chain of command allows you to. Q2. Same answer. Q3. No. You need to successfully complete selection to join the SAS.

Suspect the OP has finally been able to do his jumps course & is now a full screw somewhere having had a glorious 6 years in since he asked the question.
New bloke was resurrecting the thread to ask a slightly different question.
