3 Para - Palestine 1945-1948
The sole purpose of our website is to trace members of the 3rd Bn. Parachute Regiment, who served in Palestine during the period 1945-48
and, if possible, reunite them with old friends
they haven't seen since demob. So far we have traced over 60 members of the battalion reuniting most of them with old friends they hadn't
seen for 50 - 60 years, and have enjoyed several
reunions at venues around the country.
Our website now provides a pictorial record of the Battalion's time in Palestine and if you served with the battalion during the period
1945-48 your picture should be included in one of the
21 Photo Albums or in one of the Group photos - which cover the Officer's Mess, Sergeants Mess, A, B, C, & HQ company, and the Athletics,
Boxing, Hockey, Rugby & Tug of War Teams.
If you see your picture, or that of a relative, on our website or have photos of anyone who served with the battalion in Palestine, please
