Description

The airborne nature of this elite regiment is illustrated by the depiction of an open parachute in the centre of their emblem. The rest of the Parachute Regiment Beret Cap Badge shows the Royal crest above the parachute (a lion standing on a crown) plus outstretched wings to further underline the Paras specialist aerial operations.

Formed during WW2 by Churchill who was impressed by a German airborne strategy during the Battle of France, this regiment was then composed of volunteers from the Army and recruitment is still similar today. Potential members of the Paras must have at least six months of blemish-free Army time under their belts before they can apply for the rigorous selection procedure. Incidentally, even though the parachute emblem and name will never be removed, the last time this method of deployment was used by the Paras in an operation was back in 1956 during the Suez crisis.

This quality beret cap badge is supplied with a backing plate for fixing to a beret. Find the matching Parachute Regiment maroon silk-lined beret and the Para Regiment Regimental tie
