G M Walker from, Ottawa
Congratulations to you Tim for bringing this fine site back. I have had a chance to read the messages of many old fellow jumpers. I would only like to add to Dick Derkson's comments - I tend to agree about "B" Troop - however "Yah But", "Fly" or one of the other "Old Guys" would point out to both of us that "B" Troop was once "A" Troop and so on. Fair winds and soft landings.

Together we both forge some of the essential elements required to keep the memory of the Regiment alive. The brotherhood should always maintain ways of staying strong, we now share a part of our own history, and also shared the same mud together, we at the Association will strive to deliver the same standards set forth in the Regiment, by the 3 issues per year of the "Maroon Beret Magazine", the Airborne Kitshop, and promoting memberships in the Airborne Regiment Association. With our thanks and appreciation for your great job on maintaining your very important homepage. We at ARAC extend the very best of the season to you, and all the Airborne family during the holiday season, and thoughout the year. Regards, Robert Veary/Secretariat ARAC
