Welcome!

I lived in Machrihanish for about 5 months. I've never been so cold or wet in my life!

Nice, I had a mate in my section back home who was in 2 Para, I went to a drill night with 10 Para many moons ago while I was backpacking.
Great regiment, best Infantry in the world IMO.

I went to the Chelsea barracks, that was back in '94.

You still have 21/23 SAS in the TA? and SAS Reserve?

I'll bet $20 bucks it was gusting over 40mph when you jumped! It felt like we were living in a wind tunnel there.

On the positive side, I developed a taste for Single Malt while living there.
