Gone but Not Forgotten: Mick Mathews Parachute Regiment.

Discussion in 'Infantry' started by The_Cad, Jul 24, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. It's hard to believe that it's twenty years since Mick was murdered by PIRA cowards in Cullyhanna on the 28th July 1988.

    For those who didn't know him, Mick was a 3 Para veteran who fought in the fiercest battle of The Falklands War on Mount Longdon, he was serving with 1 Para when he died. He left behind a young widow.

    I am going to raise a glass or twenty to Mick on the 28th in his memory and hope that many of you will join me.

    RIP Mick mate, you will never be forgotten.

    I had a wee chat with Sparky jnr yesterday who's joined the maroon m/c;

    a) I told him in no uncertain terms if he get's himself bodybagged, wounded, spackered or vegetised in any way I'll fecking kill him when he gets back.

    b) Can I babysit his 40" LCD screen, Xbox 360 and CoD4 etc when he's away and/or can he leave it in his will?

    Answers;
    a) Okay auld yin, I'll try
    b) No get yer own

    All the best Cad

    Besides which, Paratroopers never really die, they just go to Valhalla and regroup (And call Odin a Hat no doubt!)
