The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  1. I am already an ARRSE user :D but my friend is certain that Parachute Regiment recruits at ITC are eligible to wear to the Maroon Beret after 4 weeks of phase 1 training on completion of thier drill test, albeit with a disc backing behind the cap badge.

    Many thanks

  3. I once saw a documentary on whales.
