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. Hello,

    Am I correct that Colchester is the current Parachute Regiment base for the second and third battalions?

    Is the Leeds base not primarily used? If you're from the north of England will Colchester be your base? (providing you're attached to the second or third battalion)

    Thanks
     
  2. Leeds ls the HQ of the fat paras (4 para) I think
     
  3. Yep. 2 & 3 PARA are based in Colchester for the foreseeable future.
     
  4. Don't forget 49 Para @ Walton-on-the-Naze!
     
  5. Yep 2 and 3 Para at Merville Barracks in Colchester and 1 Para at St Athans
     
  6. Several of whom will be courtesy of MCTC... Hat... cloak...
