A Pictorial Ode to the British Paras

Why, you might ask? Well, why not, I answer. With the MoD and its excellent Defence Image Database presenting a lot of Para photos, sharing them on this blog is just the logical thing to do, aye? Of course, interestingly, there as been a move to abolish the Paras, because modern warfare pretty much makes infiltration by parachuting obsolete, but alas, I hope that this will be once more pushed out. I am kind of fond of them, with their general barge-through attitude. 😉

If you have enjoyed all these wonderful photos, you might wish to consider to say “thank you” to all those British Forces photographers in a roundabout way: by making a donation to Marquesate’s favourite UK charity: the Royal British Legion. I know that I do, regularly. 🙂
