My unit back in the late 50's wore standard berets only would they wear the maroon or green lid was when attached to either 16 Bde or 3 Bde. MTC I thought you only won a place there if it was trial by courts martial

I always thought that if you did 'P' Company and went onto No1 Parachute Training School and successfully completed the statutory eight jumps to gain your wings and serve with the Para Bde or Commando Bde then you were entitled to wear your wings for ever more.The lightbulb was only worn by those who did the jumps but did not serve with a Para Unit or Commando Unit and served with other units.

Hi Jock.
I completed 'P' Company and then my basic jumps course. I however did not serve with an airborne unit until much later, when i then served as a badged soldier and was then able to wear wings.

Nobby,I served with Para Regt and transferred to infantry and as regulations state you were permitted to wear wings if you qualified and served with an airborne unit on all uniforms.Mind you some officers were jealous of those chaps that had wings up and even went looking up regs to see if you were in fact entitled to wear them even wings of other countries if you were qualified.

We had a General (Cant remember what star) called Ing or Inge who wore the lightbulb on his sleeve, if he saw anyone with para wings on their shoulder he would question them and ask when they last did their jumps. A jock lad from HQ company (5 Ord Bn) who apparently gained his para wings with the TA came into the Generals sights, to say he was annoyed when he was told to take his wings off is an understatement.

I'm sure it's a given that senior ranks didn't go to jail. The same General (Ing or Inge) put a Staff Sergeant in jail for not saluting his car, the General then marched into the CO's office and asked why his senior ranks didn't salute officers. This was at Barker Barracks c1987.

There was a lengthy article in the Daily Telegraph to mark the final closure of Shepton Mallet Jail earlier this week

It was used by the military from 1939 till 1966, some of the more notorious inmates in the 1950s National Service era were the Kray twins, jailed for persistent Absence without Leave.

I did 6 and a half years at MCTC after transferring to MPSC from 1 RTR in 1988. A Wing, for those returning to their units was regarded as the best pre course training for a J/NCO cadre course you could get.

D Wing, (where I served) was for those being discharged from HM Forces. C Block, was the high security wing for those sentenced to imprisonment, awaiting transfer to HMP.
