Welcome to the 9th Battalion Reunion Club

Welcome to the 9th Parachute Battalion Reunion Club website!

This site is dedicated to the men who served in the 9th Battalion of the Parachute Regiment, and the actions in which they took part in World War 2, as well as providing information about the 9th Battalion Reunion Club, an organisation for veterans and their families to keep in contact and to commemorate those who we have lost.

Book Your Space Now for the 2023 Normandy Pilgrimage

If you would like to join us for the 2023 Reunion Club Pilgrimage to Normandy please see this post for details. We are also taking provisional bookings for the 80th anniversary pilgrimage in 2024, so if you are interested in attending, please contact us (details in the same post).

Note that space is expected to be limited for 2024, and those who have attended previous pilgrimages will be given priority.

Request for Contributions

If you have any stories, photographs or other information about the battalion, those who served in it, or the operations in which they were involved, please send them to us, so that we can make this a central resource for all. In particular, we’re trying to build up a complete list of all those involved in the 9th (particularly around the D-Day operations), so if you are a relative of one of the battalion members, please contribute a picture and a short (or long!) bio to add to the Red Berets page.
