Parachute Regiment Bridge

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. An Ulster Unionist MLA has proposed calling the planned bridge at Narrow Water 'Parachute Regiment Bridge' in memory of those that died at Warrenpoint. Call for 'Parachute Regiment Bridge' - UTV Live News

    Probably just a bit of Shinner baiting rather than a serious proposal but it would actually have been a nice idea.
  2. Will lay odds now that officially or unofficially it now becomes the "Vol. (insert name of dead chuck) Bridge" complete with shrine.

    Silly thing to do.
  3. Hmm, the bill for cleaning graffiti off it will probably be more than it'll cost to build!

    We mustn't forget the Queens Own Highlanders took casualties that day as well.

  4. Here's a thought:

    Perhaps it would be fitting to name the bridge after an inocent bystander, many of whom are too often victims in these events

  5. Reasonable suggestion and as such probably the last thing likely to happen.
  6. Perhaps they'll moor a boat called Shadow V underneath the bridge.

  7. Shadow V?
  8. Wah?

  9. It was Earl Mountbatten's boat - the IRA murdered him and others aboard the same day as Warrenpoint

    That was the name of Mountbatten's boat.

    Edited to add; Squeaky Boat already had answered.
  11. WAH!
  12. It's not a wah until people have answered you underpant.

    There is really no need for a bridge there anyway, the money could be better spent elsewhere.
  14. Chill stumpy.
  15. Cheeky barstool.
