British Para Wings - help please.

#1 Post by 44valskerm » Mon 10 Feb, 2014 1:52 pm

Afternoon all
I am an ex South African Para (84 -91), Staff Sergeant now working in a UK Military School. I have joined the CCF and would like to wear wings - I do not however want to offend anyone by wearing Brit Para Wings without permission. I have over 400 static & freefall jumps. Is there a form that needs to be filled in?
Who do I contact to ask for permission/authorisation to wear wings?
Your help much appreciated.
Best wishes
Valskerm

You can only wear the wings if you have passed all courses including the P Course. If you have earned the South African Military Wings you can request to allowed to wear those. I would strongly suggest that you do not wear the British airborne wings until you have been awarded them.

You can go easy route and just join any regiment, then apply for p company.
Or join the para's and do your 6 month training before doing P company.
What way you want to get there. I know what most para's would say about it.
