Parachute Regiment Tartan Scarf
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 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.
This unique scarf is worn with pride in the UK and worldwide, by former, current, Parachute Regiment personnel and their family, friends and supporters. We have created this Authentic Tartan exclusively for you. Weaving the DNA of the Parachute Regiment into it’s very core, by incorporating these significant colours:-

LIGHT BLUE: Represents the iconic Bellerophon riding Pegasus emblem.
LIGHTER MAROON: Signifies the I Para DZ Flash.
