    Some interesting history from a member of the 3rd battalion who took part in the last combat para drop by British forces as part of the Suez crisis, whilst the 1st & 2nd battalions went in by ship to support them and L/cpl Davies was probably part of that force as he was in the area at that date and has the GS ME medal.
