Airborne Forces

Dedicated to the memory of all who gave their lives whilst serving in Airborne Forces

`For we are noted for being at once most adventurous in action & most reflective beforehand.  Other men are bold in ignorance, while reflection will stop their onset.  But the bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory & danger alike, & yet notwithstanding go out to meet it.` 

For the wholes Earth is a sepulchre of famous men ; & their story is not graven only on stone over their native earth but lives on far away, with visible symbol woven into the stuff of other men`s lives. 

'Thucydides`
