On 22 June 1940 during WWII, Prime Minister Winston Churchill wrote to the British Chief of Staff, directing the setting up of a Corps of at least 5,000 parachute troops, which would become known as the Parachute Regiment. Also known as The “PARAS” the regiment have earned their reputation for being Daring, Determined and Courageous. Heroic actions in Normandy, Arnhem, the Falklands and Afghanistan are cemented in Regimental folklore. The Parachute Regiment motto is “Utrinque Paratus” (Ready for Anything).

The ‘Parachute Regiment Tartan’ is the only Officially Registered Tartan in the world, to pay respect to The Parachute Regiment. And is fully endorsed by The Parachute Regiment.
