Do many 4 PARA go on to join the regulars?

Out of interest I was wondering if it is a well trodden path for 4 PARA soldiers to get a taste for it and join full time? If so, are they required to start from day one as a regular or is there a conversation course?

I wouldn’t say well trodden but lads have done it, it’s probable transferees will have to do PCOY again but not sure about preliminary training blocks, maybe someone could clarify

Thanks @Mac_t1lt . What about the other way round? So many regulars leave and rejoin 4 PARA? Just trying to gauge the cross pollination between regular and reserves.

One of my old bosses was a Tom with 4 PARA then commissioned as a regular. Think he’s still in

4 para will join regulars on various exercises and yes some do go regular either via attachment or re joining as a regular
