Interesting, so what is Taff Hunt up to now then? Did he do his 22?
Amazing that this was filmed 33 years ago, also bloody scary!..My dad served in the regt at that time and knew some of the blokes. I recently watched it again on youtube, last time I saw the series it was on an old VHS that I have not seen for about 20 years!..
Never knew this until recently, but as a very young kid, one of the blokes mentioned lived in the same block, across the road. I used to know his son, but I forgot who his dad was..it was all so long ago now. Anyway, as other posters have also mentioned, he went onto 'another unit' and appears did rather well for himself.
It was so long ago now, even the youngest blokes would be around 50 by now, different era, different time, but would be interesting to know what any of them are doing now. ..
He attended Monmouth School and after two years service in the RAF as a Photographic Intelligence Officer he graduated from St John's College, Oxford, with an honours degree in English. He trained as a journalist and actor, was a prolific writer of revues and appeared on stage in revue, farce and Shakespearian productions before his first appearance as a TV presenter on That's Life!.
What is the best site for my Dad to use to try make contact with 480 platoon? He was back squadded and went on to be Sergeant in 3 Para and on the documentary (albeit not aired much as back squad) we’ve just watched the series together and seen this forum
