Hi guys, I suppose most Airborne bods (past & present) are already aware of the Governments intentions to cease Para Training until 2011. That's the thanks you get from politicos with more faces than town hall clocks. 3 Para kick arse in Helmland, losing good men for the cause and come back to this crap. Smacks of how they crapped on the Black Watch too. Anyway, the point of this thread is to make you aware of a petition (created by an ex Para Regt lad called David Smart) to the PM to stop this madness. Follow the link below and sign up to it should you feel as disgusted as me. This Link will take you to a write up in the Telegraph. And This Link will take you to the petition.
