SubSunk Parachute Assist Group

A random question about these fella's:

As they are trained parachutists, do they have to do P Company? Not a Walt question as I've every intention of staying a skimmer, but it crossed my mind!

Many thanks,

Al
 
If it is what I think it is, no they do not. I have a mate who did it and he didn't say that he did anything like that, although I believe he did a stint doing some medical training.

Haha nearly.......
SubSunk Parachute Assist Group are made up of divers there job is to parachute into the water where their sole job is to rescue any submariners on the surface who have escaped from the submarine.

Not quite P company no need to do combat jumps. Just to fall into the water. An Oppo of mine done it for a number of years said it was top dit material.....
