Army Rumour Service
This was a 1964 propaganda film about the Swiss military, to try to show that Switzerland was hardly defenceless in the Cold War.
Hawker Hunters, Centurions, Bren carriers, and an interesting mix of WW2-era and Cold War era kit.
Fill yer boots (you can fast forward the first 4 minutes to skip the BS).
Reports are coming in of a fire today on board the Lancaster in the No4 engine.
Aircraft landed safely and fire was tackled by firefighters at RAF Coningsby.
Hopefully not too much damage.
Just out of curiosity?
(I hope this is the right thread for this)
And I don't mean this in the "who's got the biggest dick contest", but just in general like training, deployments ect. I read a book about a Legionaire (Simmon Murray, an excelent book I have to say), from his time in 2 REP he had completed something in the region of 75 jumps which seems a lot and this was forthy years ago!...
