The Colonel Commandant of The Parachute Regiment, Lt Gen Sir John Lorimer (Pictured), said: “We take our responsibilities for veteran welfare support extremely seriously. We have specific staff in our Regimental Headquarters who are able to advise former serving members of the Regiment on all matters relating to the ongoing cases. We are indebted to our Regimental predecessors, who served with such courage, sacrifice and dedication to duty to bring about peace and security in Northern Ireland.”
