It was a good show, just 5 men who joined up aged 15 or so then went off to war telling their stories. No talking head putting some 'side' on it and comparing to today. Just some old soldiers and sailors talking about how they went to war as teenagers. Excellent stuff.

Have a look at Stan Scott.
Still nails in his 80s:
Stan died on 25th June this year.

He used to be my CSM when I was in the ACF in the mid 80s. A top bloke who was until recently Secretary of the Commandos Association. He wrote a book a few years ago about his life. And yes, gents he was ******* nails!!!
RIP Stan, I'll raise a glass to you the next time.

Just realised I posted the wrong video of Scotty:
 
Just watched it on 5+. Worth every minute: particularly ironic was the comment from the Medic on coming across a man with the top half of his head missing-"I thought to meself, well, there's no need to check if he's breathing".
