Presentation of Colours 13 July 2021

We hope you can gather with Airborne friends to watch the Presentation of Colours. On 13th July our Colonel In Chief, HRH The Prince of Wales will present the new Colours to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Battalions of The Parachute Regiment. 

Unfortunately, due to the extension of the Step 3 Government restrictions, guest attendance to the event will be very limited, focussing on the serving and their families, especially those that could not have a Pass Off Parade in the last year.  

The broadcast will start at approximately 1045hrs centred on the parade square in Merville barracks, there will be Three Guards drawn from the three battalions and we will see the Old Colours marched off for the last time. The Consecration Service will follow and the New Colours will be presented to the three Battalions. Activity on the Parade Square will finish with a flypast and freefall display by the Red Devils.

To ensure the best seat, Forces TV will broadcast the event live on our Regimental Facebook page for our many supporters that cannot attend in person.

There is also a range of commemorative merchandise for sale through the Airborne Shop with profits going towards SUPPORT OUR PARAS, The Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces Charity.
