Hey. I'm sure anybody wanting to join the Paras already has the motto memorised. However, as I don't know any Latin the pronunciation is still a mystery. So what is the accepted pronunciation? Cheers.

Even Latin scholars will argue over some pronunciations so don't be intimidated by anyone who claims that there is a definitive way of saying it. Another variation:

Utrinque paratus = You-trink-way parah-tus

And while we're in Latin class:

Ad unum omnes = Ad ooh-numm om-nez

The motto of Airborne Forces translates as 'All to one purpose' or 'All to one end'.

Meanwhile someone within the Royal Marine PR machine churned this cracker out.


It’s ok, they say imitation is the sincerest of flattery...

Someone is definitely on the wind up. Note the maroon “Apply Now”
