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. Due to the sheer professionalism of the system I am missing an Op deployment from my service history.
    I’m looking for the date that 1 & 2 Para did a HO/TO of Palace Barracks in 1993. (I think it was June ish).
    I was part of the ATO team that came in from the mainland and squatted about for a couple of weeks until we moved a permanent team into the workshops.
    Thanks in advance

  2. Sounds about right. I was Support company, we were first out in April 1993.
  3. The official date was July for 1 PARA leaving, but for some reason that sounds a bit late - I was posted to 1 PARA before that in Montgomery lines, and as far as I could make out the whole battalion was there.
  4. Companys left at different times. Cant remember who was last out.
  5. Maybe the official date is for the last sub-unit or individuals - int cells/CONCOS etc.
  6. Think it was B Company.
  7. Thanks so far guys.

    Anyone have a date for the COs change?

    I can also remember an incident where a SUS was hit on the top of his helmet (old tin lid) during a beasting and sustained an injury. If that jogs anybody's memory date wise.
