As per those who are wearing foreign jump wings, they may wear the wings if they participate in joint jumps with other nations.

A couple of questions...

Why the "tab" for airborne and scuba diver?

In the US model the airborne "tab" is associated with a unit (82d, 101st, etc.). Isn't it redundant to have the "tabs" and the badges for airborne and scuba diver?

That is peculiar. Now that I notice it, it does seem redundant.

There are no limits to the number of tabs and badges as long as there are proper orders for the badges and must be worn in accordance with the AFP Uniform Code.

Ok, it's just I've remembered we were once told that on BDA's a maximum of three (3) badges only were appropriate. Only during wearing the smart GOU that we could wear all your earned insignias and badges.

The wreath consisting of laurel leaves is placed in are pattern at the base of the badge.

I think there's a previous thread here somewhere discussing about badges and over wearing them.

If you want to wear these and know more about it, try joining first and follow the footstep of your grandpa  :goggles:

yup, I know that sir. I just want the viewers what type insignias our soldier bear in their GOA uniforms so that they can have information on what unit to choose from and sign up for.

The Basic Parachutist is interesting? Can a Reserve soldier get a training in Fort Magsaysay on Basic Parachustist?

I believe yes. But trainings normally are conducted on a regular basis and training schedule which normally is a problem for Reservists who are weekend soldiers. But as I've said, it's possible because there are Reservists (on their own free time) who have undergone special trainings and were authorized to wear those badges.

Check out the AFP J1 Manual - it substantiates the claim of saver 111 of a maximum of 3 badges at the same time.

So looking at the picture at the start:

I will try to piece up and scrounge on World War II badges, medals and others insignias used in Commonwealth to Post WW-2 (1950s) Philippine Army in a new thread.

There are some courses that offer it to all branches of service. Like when we had out air-to-ground operations two weeks ago, almost half of the class were from the Army, and two were from the PNP. I am not sure but I think basic airborne is also offered to all branches of service. I will leave it up to the real airborne guys to confirm though.

For Reservist, one example would be the AFPRESCOM, represented by all branches, where members cross-train in the courses being offered to them.
