If defence cuts continue, this will be all the airborne troops the British Army will have left... one para. But at least he will be the nailsest of the nailsest!

1 PARA are now committed to the Special Forces Support Group and are based at the former RAF airfield of St Athan in Wales. Coming under the directorship of UKSF they are thus separate from the other two regular battalions though personnel from 2 and 3 PARA do rotate through, maintaining a skills base that is unmatched in the rest of the infantry. And don't they bloody know it.
