    someone inform them that the USMC will take the ones that can get over here. they take them from Mexico, Vietnam and other places. I hate to see these young men being thrown on the scrap heap of life. what a waste. guess Westminster will have more millions to give away to people that hate the west.

    All the warnings their receiving from people who know, and their still cutting the armed forces, it's sheer stupidity on a big scale. Putin and other sabre rattlers must be laughing their bollocks off at this crap !

    They do this....with what they have done to the likes of the 16th Independent Parachute Brigade and the amalgamation of the Highland Regiments and the County Regiments we will have no punch left at all hardly. Just a token ineffective Military

    I understood it, as wanting the places to fill the posts on the second aircaft carrier, so a side ways move and rebadged. The Navy always wanted to be independent and have their own budget. Sadly its come to haunt them as the new ships eat deep into the money pot and not much left out of their trillion budgets!! They don't have a decent sponsor to support them............we have HRH!!

    Its funny to think about the Earl of Wessex and him not making the grade. It proves one thing neither PARA Reg or RM Lympstone give a free pass to even important people. They have to be seen to achieve the task in hand, like Harry and William have!!
    I do think HRH has made a massive difference in what happened to 1 PARA and the retention of the other two Regular Battalions when other units were being merged like the Scots and the County Regiment IMHO!

    He was given a shaped Victors beret at an Airborne Forces day in early 80's - after the parade,in one of the beer tents - I forget who gave it to him but it did happen 😁😂😂
    I just don't understand why they won't shut the hell up while I practice my people skills....

    He was actually presented with one in the Sgt's Mess 3 Para,Osnabruck,79 ish,but seemed to lose it quickly,or preferred a porky!That was the same time C/Sgt Mick Mingins drunkenly jumped through the window into the bar,naked but for a cowboy hat and two six guns on a belt,pulled them out,and shouted "Reach for the sky Big Ears!"He spent his last 6 months or so,until discharge,banished to the Toms bar in the NAAFI!It was several months after he left that we found he'd filled a 5 gallon drum of rifle oil in the armoury with washing up liquid,explaining the bubbles pouring off our weapons in the rain!

    I would like to see somebody ask to see the HRH's Beret and look inside to see if the name of the Para is still there.

    Realised that when the bloke behind the bar in the village pub a few years back said it was his birthday,and it turned out he'd been born the day I stepped through the hallowed gates of the depot.Buried his dad the other day,not that many years older than me.None of us getting any younger,but thank f.ck for this gene that makes me better looking every day!

    . I didn’t know they gave his proper one to Don. Don could probably make a bit on eBay for that.
    I have always set myself a very low standard, and constantly fail to achieve it.
