Putting all rivalries and bias aside who are considered better paras or commandos?

For example in the RA there's 7th para and 29cdo, out of the two who has the best reputation? who's considered most intelligent, brave, and generally more able? And out of the two who do they send in first? Discuss.

2-0 to the commandos.
Who cares? They both manned by good soldiers, they are both very well trained, they both do a good job and more to the point they are both on our side. (And I for one am bloody glad they are)

Calm down everyone! just wanted to know who had the better reputation.

Since that has got everyone in a flap, can anyone give me any details of how the operations of 7th Para and 29cdo differ?

OK

7th Para prefer operations where the objective contains large amounts of beer.


29cdo prefer operations where the objective contains large amounts of Pina Colada.

:wink:

ok,

so when 7 Para jump out of planes (which are working perfectly) they do so with really heavy pieces of kit 8O 8O

and when 29 Cdo get to a beach, they lie IN THE SURF, at night and preferrably when its cold 8O 8O

now that's just weird

Jackrimmy, when you've gone through the links to those threads, (and they're just a small selection,) let is know what you think of them.

You've got to rate them better than a pissing contest !
:D

Can't remember who won the footie "backstage" at Larkhill 1990 and after all football is all that really matters...

I do remember 29 cdo were firing 20 mils over our heads and we were firing 20 mils over 7 para's
