RHQ PARA WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF YOU COULD SHARE THE MESSAGE BELOW FROM THE COLONEL COMMANDANT AND THE REGIMENT ACROSS YOUR NETWORKS:
You will be aware that a former soldier, from our Regiment, has been arrested as part of the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) investigation into the events of Bloody Sunday. While the Regiment cannot comment on an ongoing PSNI investigation it is important, the wider Regiment know, that RHQ is in communication with the appropriate department within the MOD and Army HQ; and that the former member of the Regiment is being offered the appropriate support.
The Colonel Commandant appreciates that this is a difficult time for both the veteran and his family, and assures them of our support while this case is being investigated. He would also like to remind all our former servicemen that RHQ is able to offer support should it be required. Should any of you have concerns surrounding your participation in Op BANNER (the campaign in Northern Ireland), RHQ PARA is able to provide welfare support to you and your families should it be required.
If you wish to speak to the Regimental Secretary he can be contacted on 01206 817082 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your help in this matter is much appreciated.
