This web site has been created to encourage members and ex-members of The 1st Battalion The Parachute Regiment and the wider 1 Para family to reunite friendships old and new.
Many friendships were formed during our service and as is common practice these friendship fall by the wayside when we return to civil life and contact is lost. However this is your life line to a brighter future and a rekindling of the past years of service life and the Esprit-De-Corps which makes us what we are - Airborne Brothers.... UTRINQUE PARATUS (Ready for Anything)
New members are welcome however due to the demand from current Members we have stopped taking members for the moment, please visit the site over the next few months when hopefully we will be able to take new members then.
For all members of 1 para reunion club (my events site ) just go to log in, complete the form and click join the community, and we will get back to you within 48 hours.
What Manner of Men are those that wear The Maroon Beret!
They are firstly, all volunteers and are then toughened by hard physical training.
As a result they have that infectious optimism and that offensive eagerness which comes from physical well-being.
They have jumped from the skies and by doing so have conquered fear. Their duty lies in the van of battle:
They are proud of their honour and have never failed in any task.
They have the highest standard in all things, whether it be skills in battle or smartness in execution of all peacetime duties.
They have shown themselves to be as tenacious and determined in defence as they are courageous in attack.
They are in fact, men apart. ...Every Man an Emperor
