The most elite and highly trained regiment in the British military. Recruits undergo exclusive training at Catterick, Yorkshire, before undergoing the gruelling P-Company, a week of physical endurance tests, the military equivalent of evolution; only the strong will survive. Generally full of young men too violent for civilian life, the Parachute Regiment is the generals' 'weapon of choice' when attacking heavily defended enemy positions.
"I was going to join the Parachute Regiment but...." (generally followed by a weak excuse, for example, "I suffered a heart attack on P-Company.")
