Welcome home." The Freedom of the City of Birmingham cel...

Paratrooper01 I never claimed the Fusiliers had more contacts than the rest of the Battle group put together. But you must admit they were sh*t on alittle by 3Para. Within a few days of being told they were going to Afghan they were out living in the Trenches of NOWZAD and stayed there for over 4 m...

We got 2 fun jumps from 12 grand at the end of our High altitude para course to get in a throw away conversion for the light weight parachutes used for skydiving. My PJI turns round to me on the way up and asks what i wanted to do in freefall, what exit i wanted to do off the ramp etc... Decided in ...

Its called the HUPRA 5000.

Question is, what the hell happened to the other 4999???!!!! :lol:

Always got my arse twitching listening on the Para brief when they start going on about it... "If after your 3 second count you look up and you are still attached to the aircraft...." :lol:

Some tasty chicks cutting about in KAF. That Welsh girl and her boyfriend was sickening but good on her for ditching him. Needs to get herself a nice paratrooper. :wink: KAF was like a little holiday when i was out there. Tried to get on day trips there when we had some down time in camp Bastion. Ge...

"you can go SFSG straight from training" - Yes, but it is unlikely... Although selection is run on a points system an oppo of mine was thinned out for not having enough experience. Long of the short, you have to be f@#k ninja if you've just passed out. For a young paratrooper it is still 1 of 3 Par...
