2 Para are based at Colchester, however they're in Iraq at the minute.

3 Para are based at Colchester, however they're overseas prepping for the upcoming tour of Afghanistan at the moment.

1 Para are in the process of moving from Dover to St Athen in South Wales, and they also have elements overseas.

See a pattern forming? :lol:
