Paras wearing flecktarn

#1
I was at south cerney back last summer and i noticed that there was a battalion of paras practising jumping out of the skyvan.
There was some soldier (and if my memory serves me a couple) wearing flecktarn. Is this a para thing, or is it an ally thing to do whilst training??

Just one? or two? Exchange Officer or Senior or one of each?

Sure they weren't Germans? The blokes wear some strange variations of DPM but I've never seen them wearing flecktarn.

Due to nearly all the Hercules aircraft being tied up in Iraq or Afghanistan then things like the Red Devils Sky Van are being pressed into action for training purposes

The Freds havn't got G-ORED anymore (but they still jump it occasionally), they sold it 2 years ago. They have to hire aircraft now. The Skyvan is due to get binned in May too, stand by for even more of a clusterf**k on the military para front. :roll:

The skyvan was 'G-PIGY'. and i don't think the paras there were doing their jump training as there was what looked like a whole battalion. How come nobody likes the silver stars lol?

Yeah, G-PIGY is used regularly to conduct continuation training for trained soldiers. It is the only small airframe available to conduct parachuting from, which is very handy because of it's short take-off capability. Which is why it is such a crazy decision to get rid of it soon, especially in light of the shortage of C 130s.

The Silver Stars are OK, well the ex Freds at least! Clarkey is good for a bit of banter too!
