Topic: BBC's "The Paras"


I'm trying to find out what happened to the people featured in the BBC documentary "The Paras" first shown in 1982.
I'm not just interested in the recruits, but the staff as well, Captain Baird, Sgt Riley, the section corporals etc.

I know what happened to Cpl (Later Sgt) Slater, and about Dean Ward's career, but I'm just trying to find out about the rest of the staff and recruits of 480 platoon.

Anyone got any info or links?

Many thanks

Have a word with Airborne over on exiles, he's a serving Para officer. Capt Frogman on here is a personal friend of his.
