Well.... at least there was NO WOMEN in the first episode last night.... just a blubbery Murray'esque Saffa who should have been on the X factor rather than training to bayonet men... glad he's gone...

Oh and Ant, Foxy and Co... hang your heads with SHAME..... Women on SAS Who dares Wins... fucking behave fella's... put me right off my 4 cans of Strongbow...

It's a fairly 'by the numbers' dramatisation of the Iranian Embassy siege.......but with a surprisingly good cast ( Mark Strong, Jamie Bell)

Re training recruits, parachute regiment sergeants have been attached to the royal marines to train recruits or run junior command courses (for corporals).

Therefore it probably works the other way. However they have to be at least a sergeant and would have made it to an even higher rank, so would have served at least 15 years. In addition to represent RM as an instructor with the Paras means they have to be very good.

Not sure if this helps you though?

Read a book about the SAS called ‘Soldier I’ a fair few years ago. From what I can remember it concentrated mainly on the Iran embassy siege and battle of Mirbat in Oman. I think it’s recently been updated, but the original was a fucking cracking read. Highly recommended.

haven't read it yet but recently bought SAS : ROGUE HEROES


This is indeed an excellent book... it inspired me to read Fitroy McLean's Eastern Approaches. A very different type of book but absolutely fascinating about his time In Yugoslavia with Tito's partisans.

There were some fucking amazing people around in WW2 who did not shy away and rose to the challenge, that is for sure!

On Facebook there is a page called: ‘Walter Mitty Hunters club’, which is run by ex forces types who out these people. They might be able to help you?

Re: The Paras - Men of War
Ex Forces boys.... oh and girls I suppose....

Got someone I know who is coming across as a bit of a Walter Mitty... reckons he was in the Royal Marines and served out in Afghan... reckons got captured and tortured along with some others by Taliban and was rescued by Special Forces... I have not known or cannot find of any record of RM's getting rescued by SF's?? Latest now he has said that whilst he was a RM he helped train para regiment recruits?? Now as far I knew the para's and the RM's are two totally different entities... one Army and the other navy... that and the two of them don't exactly get on?? As far as I ever known it's Para catterick and P-Coy staff?? So before I buy him a Bullshit meter for his birthday anyone know if this bloke is speaking heep big truth??

My cousin has been based at the Falklands with the skeleton crew they now have there, though way back when the RAF still used phantoms.

Said it was the most bored and frozen he'd ever been.

The French supplied them with the Exocet.

The French also supplied Mirages with pilots, to the RAF/RN before the shooting started, so British pilots could find out the Mirages (used by the Argentinians) weaknesses and exploit them. As a result, not a single Harrier was lost in air to air combat in the Falklands war.

Some British ships were also armed with French Exocets, so we were well aware of their capabilities and how to try to counter them.

cholo, wouldn't be surprised. The French supplied them with the Exocet.

In fairly sure I've read certain argentine units had snipers equipped with night vision scopes, not sure they were at goose Green specifically though.
