Greetings ex-warriors, been trying to access this site since Adam was a lad, success at last. MMG's 1 Para mid 50's to mid 60's (I still have the imprint of the tripod on my back). PJI at 16 Para from mid 60's to mid 80's, some 30 years with brigade in one form or another. Was on 1 Para Reunion Club site which was changed, so lost contact with many former contacts. May have met you on basic para course, HALO, LOLO, HELLO, Heavy drop, Supply drops, some airborne exercise or other etc. if the drop was good it was me, if drop was crap it was someone else. Veteran of the battle of the NAAFI club 56, and the Rat Pit skirmish (supported by 9 Sqn colleagues) 1957. Medals to prove it. Live long, live well!

Welcome to the site. there are some strange blokes on here, but luckily that is balanced by having representatives from the mighty 9 Independent Para Sqn to bring, intelligence,sophistication, good looks, intellect and an appreciation of the arts.
PS...if you go on the Poetry Thread and notice some weird bloke called johnb, don't tell him about the rest of the site, he hasn't noticed yet and we'd prefer to keep it that way.

Ron, what browser are you using? IE gives some problems with posting or adding pictures.

Don, seem to be sorted now thanks, I was semi-pissed when I tried twice before. Here in the home for the bewildered I have been trying to thread a needle since last Thursday so that I could sew the fart-rip in my ex army jungle green shreds (anyone remember them?). What the f**k happens to us, I shot at Bisley for 1 Para in something called a Whitehead Cup (or was that Blackhead?) Now cannot thread a f***ing needle. Andy (MM) good to hear from you, Matron is still a bullying cow but tucks me in bed every night and kisses purple Ronnie good-night, so no complaints.

Not sure why I bovver coming back in here, I try to extricate myself regularly, alas I always stick my hooter in mainly to see who's fallen off the perch. Welcome standupstraightinthedoor.. Pete's an old daft scrote who thinks he's down with the you guns in here..

Hello, forgive any crap I post on here over the next hour or so I am still trying to post replies, so will write any gibberish (I usually do anyway). I click 'reply to thread', enter text in the box then cannot find a 'send' tag. Will try 'Post Quick Reply' this time
