This book covers the history of RAF Regiment Parachute Units from the formation of the RAF Levies Parachute Company in Iraq in 1942 until 2012, which saw the 50th anniversary of the re-roling of II (Field) Squadron as a parachute deployable Squadron.
The author is the son of a former Warrant Officer who served with the RAF Regiment for over thirty seven years, which included service with II (Field) Squadron and with the Near East Air Force Parachute Rescue Force.
This book is the result of eight years research, conducted whilst the author was serving in the Army. The last four of these years were at RAF Honington whilst serving alongside the RAF Regiment.
