Hi lads first time posting on this forum and here goes my first question/discussion I have!
I was wondering what serving Paras or retired Paras think about the 7 Para RHA? Do you guys think of them as joke? Do guys in the Paras not give them any respect and are they looked at a certain way?
Whats your overall opinion on these guys?
I have done a tad searching on the Parachute regiment/ Airborne Forces and it has been said in numerous amounts of articles that the Parachute Regiment, 7 Para RHA, Engineers etc have been waiting up to two years just to get their wings!? Some other articles have even said that the politicians are putting an end to Parachute training and that only a handful of guys will be jump trained? Whats the situation as of right now are guys waiting ages to get their wings or are they not even getting them at all now or are the journalists just full of sh*t!
Thanks for any help lads and sorry for the amount of questions
Great to be part of this forum now!
