    Oh look the French para's jumped into Mali! Guess they all get to keep their para pay then.
     
  2. Very high (and effective) British contingent/mafia in the FFL. So it's 1-0 to Britain then!
     
  3. Having worked with a few Foreign Legion fellas over the years, I'm surprised at how many Polish there are enlisted, and seeing how Poland is now economically and financially supported by Britain, mostly by the wages of all costa coffee staff and JJB sports assistants, we can claim responsibility for their efforts too.........

    Go on the Brits / Poles......

  5. Do they have little bottles of Um Bongo in their rat packs?

  6. That's a myth. They don't drink Um Bongo in the congo. They drink water riddled with typhus. Um Bongo has a much better ring to it though.

    So that's what Paras doing a combat jump look like.

  8. A "combat" jump looks exactly the same as a training jump apart from the tracer streaking towards you.

    Saw that once. I think it was at Everleigh.
     
  11. If it involved SIM 20s, wedges and door bundles it was the same jump on which my Auntie Sandra broke her femur.

  12. A Parachute Unit that actually parachutes- there's a novelty!! Maybe a lesson there. God bless the British Helibourne Assault Troops ( or HATS as they are better known!!), lol.

  13. Oh look , the usual para bashing yet again by the same cunt's with a date instead of a time for any phys related activity. Fucking worms.
     
  14. Fair play- that would have been quite exciting.
     
  15. Oh dear, we seem to have yanked a chain instead of looking at history- Bile by name, Bile by nature. 2 generations of Para chute qualified makes you look like a real basher. At least the French still do it, which was the point you cunt slavered mong.
