Feeding the Para's a Walt

When I was in I was constantly in trouble with various SSM's and RSM's for wearing my Maroon beret in a corps which the beret is black. Fortunatly despite a few "252's" my CO was ex-Para and was firmly on my side, and later on my CO was an RAF officer and everyone knows the RAF Dress sense any Way

It took a long while until it was clarified that any one who was entitled to wear maroon was to be allowed to wear the beret no matter which current unit they served in, until they lose jump pay by virtue of not having the opportunity to make the requsite number of military jumps.

I was fortunate in serving in a joint RAF/Army unit and managed to wangle jumps with the RAF Regt to keep qualified, and consequently proudly wore maroon with an RCT cap badge until my medical discharge
A reliable informant tells me this guy never did a jumps course or did P company.

Thought you chaps might like to play with him

I used to be an Admiral in Swiss Navy's U-Boat Fleet. I used to wear a lime green uniform and a mauve beret with burgundy hunter wellies. Not forgetting the Blue and Yellow polka dot cravat of course.

Or was that when I was Colonel in Chief of the 201st Mickey Mouses Own Not-so Light Infantry?

Why do you reckon these guys bother? Isn't it enough to be able to say you were in - no matter what you were in, whether it be Para, Sigs, RAC, RLC whatever? And be proud of that?

The reason I don't get it is because you're a piss poor excuse for a haggard male, and this is an old fight that best suited for the NAFFI and never in the kitchen with so many sharp knives? :D
