Guards Para Platoon

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by ruby2shoes, Jul 12, 2005.

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. I've searched the Net for anything on the Guards Para Platoon but am coming up with a blank apart from information on the now disbanded Guards Para Coy (disbanded in 1975, I think). Can anyone help with any information or point me to a site.
     
  2. Thank you for that, Barbs. I just read that link with great interest and it's the first info I've come across on the Net. My son is a Guards Para and is attached to 3 Para although apparently they "do their own thing". I know there are currently 23 of them although expecting more to arrive soon from the next All Arms P-Coy.

    There seemed to be quite a lot of contradictions in the link about the cap badge. My son came from the Grens but now wears the maroon with Para wings in front of a flash. He doesn't wear the Grens cap badge.
