3 Para in the news

Discussion in 'Infantry' started by P-Ride, Nov 30, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

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

  1. I have struggled to find much reference to 3 Para's current activities in Afghanistan - which I have a special interest in as two good friends are with them. I am, of course, heartened that the news does not seem to report any fatalities - although this is tempered by the sad losses of the Royal Irish.

    I have found these two articles and attached them below. If anyone has any more, I'd very much appreciate it if they would share them below,

    While I have the greatest respect for you & your situation.....Sometimes, you come across as a very bitter Hat.

    Sitrep from 2 RTR:

  5. Up yours "crap hat"
  6. You mistake me, I was just being flippant and not taking the piss (well not on this occasion any way).

    Oh and I'm not bitter, no reason to be.
  7. Flippant, bitter or piss taking, dingerr. You should know better!

    You're still a Hat though!
  8. Paras are not excused piss taking, just because they wear a pretty red hat 8-O

    Even the girls wear the maroon lid in Colchester, do you refer to them as hats?
  9. Ok, fair one!

    The girls arn't referred to as Hats....No.

    Some of them actually have a serious number of jumps under their belts......Not from Fat Albert though!!!
  10. Oh I don`t know... Fat Albert the Clerk had his moments!!!!
  11. Well I wouldn't call our Jackie a hat, she'd feckin kill me :)
  12. Saw him in the Traf a couple of weeks ago.
  13. I think she'd kill us all!
  14. Yep, so did I!!!
