Parachute Regiment to combine with RAF Regiment?

Line infantry; I believe that would include The Parachute Regiment as well then. Then again I have seen plenty of ACF in pink para hats.

Whose fevered brain conceived of this tripe? Twaddle at its most arrant.

All joking and inter capbadge rivalry aside. This suggestion or part of it is not as far fetched as it sounds. Elements of the RAF Regt could be subsumed into 16 AA Bde to enhance their operational readiness while the rest are left to FP.

Sounds like this could be a pukka gen, no duff rumour.
My mates back in the Battalion have told me that they recieved the warning order from the CO today.

To fall into line with RAF Reg's standards and SOP's there is a Regiment wide ban on all PT within Para Reg from now on. The headshed has dictated that only the right bicep may be excercised from hence fourth. This will encourage all Paras to follow RAF reg's lead by becoming absolute "poridge body" wasters of the highest order who are only capable of using their right arms to either lift or lower a barrier, scoff naafi baps or pull their puds whilst on stag.

The only problem being is that the Parachutist will be constantly bailing out of perfectly serviceable aircraft not very economical me thinks
Never flown with Crab Air I assume?

There, I fixed that for you.

No need to thank me.

Gentlemen and fellow ARRSERS, surely this is old news ? Last year, whilst on Public Duties and therefore being forced to stay in a pants RAF base called RAF Uxbridge, lo we did meet some RAF Regiment gentlemen who were very full of themselves and were clearly immensely brilliant at all they did. Said geniuses clearly stated they were the equivalent of the Paras and the Royal Marine, indeed suggesting they were part of a triumverate of SF types, second only to 'them' in Hereford.

Blimey thinks I, how excellent you are. I was mightily impressed with their bearing, drill, attitude and absolute professionalism, I can tell you. It is clear to me that an amalgamtaion with the Paras is absolutely the right thing to do. Anyone who thinks otherwise clearly has not met the mighty RAF Regiment who are all very good types.

I'll get me coat...
