    Just curious....anyone from the Parachute unit at AAEE present who may be able to bring a bit of first hand knowledge to bear?

  3. Wasn't there a thread featuring winged women- apparently some jobs could bypass the energetic bit of P Company and just do the jumps. I think there was some (justifiable) apoplexy amongst the Para contingent about what badge should be worn as a result. Was there a picture of a particularly unaerodynamic looking doris (was she RN) wearing wings 'earned' in such a manner.
     
  4. What about the Mutant? :p
     
  5. I just thought the parachute harness played havoc with the push up bras.
     
  6. You're refering to the image of the MA who was a member of SPAG
     
  7. What a misleading thread title. I had hoped it would be a thread discussing the merits of the Fedora.

  8. That's the badger. If she's at the pointy end of that job she deserves to wear what the **** she likes.

    My profound apologies - if I didn't think it might make an unsightly mess of my golden bowler I would now be reaching for the Mess Webley.....a new thread on natty gents head gear is indeed long overdue.

    Most responses have leapt unerringly to the wrong conclusion - I really don't give a fourpenny fig for Wimmin's issues re the whole parachuting thing.

    I was hoping for a considered response re ' Why the British Airborne don't jump from C17' ....ah well...

    At least they have a realistic prospect of doing an operational jump one day.

    Yes, the British airborne jump from C17s - just not our ones.
     
  14. Probably because we don't have enough of them, as usual.
     
  15. Call me old fashioned but why would you leave a perfectly airworthy aircraft before it touched the ground. I could understand it if the thing was on fire up in the air but that apart, why!!!!!
