When 2nd Parachute Battalion departed, Lieutenant-Colonel Jones insisted on taking ‘his troop’, 2 Troop, which was commanded by Captain Robbie Burns. To make up for the lost troop, Captain David Foxley’s 20th Field Squadron, a dark blue beret unit among red berets, joined the Squadron as 4 Troop.

Holt’s persistence paid off and when, on 15 April, the Regiment was earmarked to support 5th Infantry Brigade, the decision had to be kept from the Supreme Allied Commander, Western Europe (SACEUR). Historically the Regiment had been consistently refused permission to train with the brigade as a unit. When training was undertaken, it was usually only with 29 Battery because of its role with the Leading Parachute Battalion Group.
