Can you just transfer across from a regular para battalion into a part time 4 PARA battalion out of interest?

Your RCMO will have details of the Regular to Reserve transfer process. My understanding is it’s basically a paperwork signoff which makes your transition to the reserve seamless from the day after your termination date.

I did it. It was a single piece of paper that my CO signed and wrote a very kind statement. At the end of the day you have a skillset that the army won't want to lose, if like me, you are leaving because you and your situation has evolved, not because of a dishonourable discharge, then the army will not be keen to lose what you have. It is a very simple process and it was so positive for my mental health to do it.

Yes. And it's much, much easier transferring whilst you're still serving than to discharge, then reapply which means you have to go through the entire recruitment process again from scratch.
