Red Devils Parachute Regiment
The Parachute Regiment Freefall Team “The Red Devils” is the official parachute display team of both The Parachute Regiment (The Paras) and the British Army.
The team’s role is to promote both the Parachute Regiment and the British Army in support of recruitment – this is achieved by carrying out over 60 spectacular parachute displays at public events each year and by attracting positive publicity through the media.
Every member of the team has served a minimum of three years in a The Parachute Regiment Battalion and has taken part in at least one operational tour of duty in either: The Falkland Islands, Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and/or Iraq.
The Red Devils appear in more than 100 public parachute displays per year worldwide. The team jumps by day or night onto land or water and they say, “as long as it’s safe and technically possible weather permitting we’ll do it.”
