Q. What is this site all about?

A. This site was originally the Unofficial website of the Canadian Airborne Regiment. Its original intentions was to tell the stories of the Regiment, keep its memory alive and to act as a focal point for ex-Airborne troops to keep in touch. While the site still serves those purposes, it is growing to represent all Canadian Airborne Forces and units and acts as a gather place for jumpers from around the world.

Q. Can I contribute to the site?

A. Contributions are encouraged and welcome. We are looking to expand all sections of the site and would like to see new stories, history, photos, etc. Please use the Contact Form to get in touch.

Q. How can I contact you?

A. Because of the amount of spam that the email address for this site receives, emails that you send to this site can easily be lost. The best way to contact us is through the Contact Form.

Q. Can you put me in touch with someone from the Regiment?

A. For security reasons, no-one on this site will ever give out contact information for another person. If you want to get in touch with someone, you have two options. First, post your request in the Jump Manifest forum on this site. If anyone on this site knows the person you are looking for, they will pass on your information.

Your second option is to sign up with or contact The Airborne Brotherhood. They have an extensive contact list and may be able to help.

Q. Who is represented on the Roll of Honour?

A. The Roll of Honour represents a list of serving and retired Airborne soldiers who have been killed in action, died in training, or have passed away. It is by no means complete, so if you know of any ommisions, please submit the information using the site’s contact form. We also welcome letters and pictures about the people represented on the Roll.

Q. I have lost my coin, where can I get a replacement?

A. Contact the Airborne Kitshop. Any member of a parachute unit may purchase a coin from the Kitshop, even if your unit was not originally issued a coin.

Q. I have found an Airborne Coin, how can I get it back to the owner?

A. Contact the Airborne Kitshop, they have a copy of the coin register and can hopefully get the coin back to its rightful owner.

Q. Can I purchase Airborne Kit or Badges from you?

A. This site does not currently sell any kit or badges. The Airborne Kitshop is still in operation though and has a wide range of items available for sale. This site has no affiliation with the kitshop.

    It is with deeep regret that I am informing you of the passing of CWO RQMS John Burns (Chuck) at the age of 70. After a brief battle with cancer he passed away on March 24/2012 in deep river Ontario. I’m sure he’d be very honored to be mentioned on your website as he was very proud to be part of a proud organization. He will be sorely missed.

    thank you for your attention
