Our People

Sgt Richard Jackson “ At 7 PARA RHA we differentiate ourselves by our actions and not words. We mix consistent excellence with underlying humility, we live by the Pegasus ethos everyday whether that be in camp, on exercise or operations. As BC’s Ack I have a huge effect across the Battlefield and, the pleasure and trust of my subordinates that our actions are completed to the highest of standards. Since joining 7 I have been able to go skiing every year, surf, play hockey and travel the world”.

Capt Dave Brame RHA “As a Fire Support Team Commander I have been humbled by the professionalism, motivation and expertise of the soldiers under my command. The morale and sense of community, regardless of trade, comes from completing a specialist course and from my experience is unique to 7 PARA RHA.”

Gunner Falcus Since joining the Regiment I have completed P Coy; one of the hardest courses in the British Army, which is one of the proudest moments of life. I have been skiing and surfed, worked with our foreign partner nations and most importantly made friends for life!!!
