1 para makes an operational jump

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Apparently 100 paras have made an operational jump in Afghanistan.

    Trying to find a link to media at the moment.
  2. Will await the linky.
    For my part have attempted an operational jump but Mrs has headache :oops:
  3. The horror :D
  4. It's on the times website if you are a subscriber. Presumably by 1 para they mean sfsg?
  5. I presume so mate. I just like to call it 1 para to prevent any RAF Regiment getting in on the publicity.
  6. Good point.

    So, parachuting is just like riding a bike.

    Fall off it and hey presto, 50 years later you can still do it.

    (My monies on there being more RAF Regt and Booties on the jump than Paras.....)
  8. Any news on these jumps yet? Unable to find any mention of it in the press
    or anywhere else.
  9. Like running up a beach! :twisted:

    Dont worry, a rockape will be along presently to take the glory and spill the beans.
  11. I hear you; I imagine the RAF publicity machine will milk the bejesus out of this one!

    If I was clever, sober and could be arrsed I'd provide you with a wonderful you tube link to Percy storming a beach but I'm none of the above so tough sh1t, you'll have to take my word for it, perce aint fantastic at beach landings.
  13. I know specifically the footage to which you are referring. I also know that your Bootneck taxi drivers deliberately dropped them off on a section of beach basically designed by God to make Perce look like a drowning arse. :D

    There have been lots of these, mostly by them though. Its a tad disengenous saying its the Paras.
  17. Cheers trigger, never knew that.
  18. Ooooh, you must be in "THE LOOP".
  19. I think he's just a cock.
  20. Well, hopefully they found some British citizens, (sorry) subjects to shoot when they finally got ashore.. :D :D
