Good luck to LCpl Connor Vian, who this Saturday is hoping to secure his 5th Professional Boxing Win!


In their (much) younger days, Neil Young and Peter Ketley served together in 2 PARA and the Depot. Now both grandads, they are aiming to become the oldest pair to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic (and prove that the Parachute Regiment spirit has no upper age limit!) The Grandads will begin their epic row in December 2018 and we will be following their progress. Right now, they are busy training and crowdfunding for all the kit they need to survive approximately 50 days alone at sea...You can support the Grandads and follow their extraordinary adventure here: https://www.grandadsoftheatlantic.com
As an official partner, we look forward to seeing the PARA wings proudly displayed on their boat - aptly named ‘Utrinque Paratus’. #UtrinqueParatus

The Paras is based on interviews with those who have served or are still serving with the Parachute Regiment in 1, 2, 3, 4 or 10 Para, as well as men of the Pathfinder Platoon. It also contains interviews with members of the Royal Army Medical Corps who have worked closely and saved so many soldiers of the Parachute Regiment.

Just under a week to go until Jack 'The Hammer' Marshman formerly of 3 PARA, fights in his 4th UFC bout in São Paulo, Brazil.

Good luck Jack!

The picture below is a rough kit layout and idea of the kind of equipment the men would have jumped with during the operation.

On this day 11 years ago, 6th September 2006, Cpl Mark Wright GC was on routine patrol in the region of Kajaki in Helmand Province.
He entered an unmarked minefield with a small team after another soldier stepped on a landmine. While the first casualty was being tended, further landmines detonated as a landing space was cleared for a helicopter evacuation attempt, causing severe injuries to several others.
Cpl Wright remained in the minefield, and ordered others out, but he was himself injured by another mine while making his way to the helicopter.

Cpl Wright later died of his wounds and was posthumously awarded the George Cross for his actions.

Head on over to his facebook page Connor 'The Lion' Vian - Professional Boxing for more details on tickets and to follow his journey to the top!


On Saturday 19th August Capt Luke Shaw, Capt Kevin McCool, Lieutenant Tom Jefferson and Lieutenant Karl Christie completed the Inferno Half Marathon summiting up the Schilthorn mountain in Switzerland each carrying 35lbs.

The team all came in well under its target of 4 Hours 15 with Lieutenant Karl Christie putting in a super human effort at 3 Hours 33mins.

Thank you to all the support from across the Regiment and it's wider family. So far the team has raised just over £2,600 for Support our Paras and The Alexander Fairey Memorial Fund with the ambition to get to £3000.
For those that would still like to donate please help the team reach its goal by following the link below:
