49 Para. Close Recce Troop

#1
As one can see from my signature block, i am an illustrious member of this Troop. One which has operated in areas, which still cannot be mentioned, even the Darlington Operation :wink:

So for the member of this site who has PMed me today, asking me, how one joins this unit, and can he change his options whilst at ITC to 'my' unit, here is the answer.

You do not join us, we ask you.

I hope this also helps the other lads who are thinking of joining 49 Para.

I was once in:

69 Disco Lighting Tp RE
321 Specialist Bin Removal Sqn RE (only after completion of my B1 Bass Broom Operator Mechanic course).
999 Striking Civilian Support Sqn RE

... and the final test of my All Arms SF Painting & Decorating Course was to paint the boathouse ... at night ... dressed as a bush ... in the rain ... using emulsion.

It's all true I tell yer guv ... read me book :wink:

So it was you that made that mess

I was wandering past it the other day with Dinger,Dell and ubby Loo when some one said "have you seen the state of the boat hoose man"
"It looks as though it's been done by a one eyed blind bloke jumping up and down"
What a slap dash job as it was we were in a rush to get to the Balcony for a pint
As per usual the plan to get to the boozer was longer than the actual drinking time
I wanted to hijack a local taxi but Geordie wanted to walk 200 hundred miles in the opposite direction and double back
Three of us ended up in the nick and Geordie got pissed and woke up in Wales
Henno went mental over the size of his kebab - he's not maintained that figure on a medium then some gwa burd chinned him and the cops were called
Mind we kept 500 coppers busy just on our reputation

Can you go back and sort out the boat house please

Persec I was trying to divert 'rogue' elements away from you
They are looking for a one eyed Scottish bloke to give a pasting too - know anyone that fits the bill

Plus didn't want to be rude :wink:
