Major David A. Breese:
591 Parachute Squadron Tribute
"Welcome to the tribute website for the 591st (Antrim) Parachute Squadron Royal Engineers. Initially called the "Antrim Fortress Company, Royal Engineers", it was formed in 1937 keeping that name
till October 1940. In early 1941 it was assigned the prefix number '591' to become "591 Antrim Field Company RE", until conversion to a Parachute Squadron began in May 1943. The squadron then became known as the " 591 Antrim Parachute Squadron RE". It was disbanded in July 1946.
As there is no regimental museum, my aim is for this website to become an online archive for this particular squadron, covering the years 1937 to 1946. A tribute to the men of the squadron who gave their time, their health or their lives, for us."
