To be honest mate, I can't.
Why? Well when I first posted this thread in September of last year, this was certainly the case and it was reported in several of the tabliods. There
was also a report in the House of Commons Defence Committe - see link below:
I have several friends in one of the premier UK parachute units who told me that jump days were cancelled, often at the last moment. [One can only
presume this is due to aircraft availability rather than cost alone]
No 1 PTS holds courses at Brize and run jump courses at Weston-on-the-Green and the Army still uses Netheravon but whether these courses are for new
recruits or requalification, it is hard to find out.
