I thought it was very moving indeed and a gnat hit both eyes at the same time. I am not ashamed to admit that at that moment I remembered how proud I was as a parent at both my son's passing out parades years ago, made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. I am still very proud of the son who is still with the colours and who is due for his LSGC shortly and also of my other son who did his time and is now doing well in civvy street. Bless all the lads and lassies in the services, you are the salt of this country.
All pre-watershed Army documentaries are spoilt by lack of realistic language. That is why Soldiers to Be had complaints rolling in to the Telegraph whereas Guns and Roses was such a lovely cuddly programme. Good pr, carp for actual insight. Hopefully things will be slightly less superficial next time (doubt it). Also this should end all those 'can I be a Household Division officer?' threads.
