BBC Documentary - The Paras

gee, its almost as good as the way cadets keep flooding shite all over the boards. :roll:


I actually have the book that accompanied the series.

It's interesting to wonder what became of them 25 years on. These three I know about -

- Cpl Al Slater, one of the instructors, later joined the SAS and was killed in action in Ulster in 1984.

- Dean Ward, the only black recruit, competed in three Winter Olympics as a bobsledder and won a Bronze Medal at Nagano in 1998.

- Rod Stoner, who won the Best Recruit award, worked for Aegis Defence Services and later became a whistleblower on their activities in Iraq.

Any others ? Keeping PERSEC in mind, of course.
