Soldiers train in snow!
And 3, 2, 1 .....
Cue stab bleating.
And before you ask it's because you're shit and can't even dress yourselves correctly never mind deploy in arduous conditions without becoming a liability to yourselves and others.
That can not be 2 PARA must be 2 Para Sqn. RAF Regt. Only the RAF PR machine would produce such an awful, embarassing and cringeworthy pile of shite!
I'm slightly confused. Why does the army think that Northumbria is hostile territory? I have missed some news?
My Auntie Edna is in sheltered accommodation up Ridsdale way. She is basically bonkers and likes to escape at night in her Nightie with her teddy bear and a cup 'o tea. I have not got a Scoobie what a 2 Para is but best they be on their ****ing toes if they cross my Auntie Edna in the night between Otterburn and Spadeadem. She is scary enough in the daylight.
Only for the last 500 years. We gave the world the word 'Feud' about 300 years before the Italians gave us the word 'Vendetta'.
Means the same but we do not share their sunny disposition. We are not hostile as such, we simply do not like ***** who talk funny.
Say it ain't snow!
These boys love the snow...and they are on our side!
I seem to recall British troops having to fight in extreme weather in Korea dressed in little more than a woolen overcoat and canvas gaiters.
I am sure your average WW1 soldier had it a lot worse!
Personally I find this story truly inspiring and am moved to tears every time I read how they are 'ploughing on' but, for the benefit of a more cynical public, could one of our resident paras please explain why they consider that training in the snow is such an achievement?
Civvys write the article dont they.
Yeah, they do. We tried having 2 Para keep their own diaries for later publication back in '03. But there is only so much "The cat shat on the mat" bollocks you can put up with before you sub the job out to people who can write. I bet she is called Charlotte.
Not necessarily and not without lots of help from the unit concerned...
That's true but your pizza is crap.
You'll find out the answer to that when a TA member explains why passing a 4 mile CFT is their equivalent of a pass on the hills phase of selection.
