British Special Forces?

Not that old chestnut again. They are Royal Artillery, who were taking the opportunity to do some boat training. Still a giggle though.

And I bet they were told, "sure those rifle's will work"

I don't quite get what you are trying to tell me here "Pillager." If it is that it is old news, it wasn't for me. This was the first time I had seen it and it was posted just the other day on an American military board, that I frequent.

Oh! BTW: To the soldiers envolved in that operation: Take heart lads, we're hearing a lot of goat bleeting noises and hoof beats, rushing to your aid! The recently demoted L/CPL Welsh Mascot Goat, is leading the rescue party to your location!!! :p :wink:

I'm moving this to 'Gunners' as it was 40 Regt RA - I imagine GQ may want to merge it with existing threads on this subject.

No harm, no foul.

Trip Wire, I suggest you take that film and your question to www.militaryphotos.net.
Maybe the lads there can answer your question correctly.

My guess is they say they're RMM Royal Mud Marines :wink:

its just that its been around for a while and some think its big and clever to take the pish as it was an RA unit who should

"Stick to what they know and leave that sort of thing to the marines"
The joke of the matter is I challenge anyone to look professional jumping into that cr*p

Personally I think it was a set-up like my first beach landing where the sods parked off in deep water just to watch us neck high stumbling towards the shore


Still it is funny :D

I didn't have any real question, the site where it was posted in the title had "British Special Forces." I added the question mark, because I doubted that the troops shown were in Special Operations. In any case, it would seem that the identification of the unit has been made right here. So, No Worries Mate!

I can confirm 100% that it is 40th Regt RA, it was taken on Telic 2, I'll save the Battery's blushes and not tell you which one it was.

With regard to the footage of the guys getting beached in the mud etc, Yep it was a certain battery in 40 Field regt, i should know their BC at the time of the
footage being shot is now my BC in a certain Air Defence Regiment.. :eek:

I was on a course with the TC in the video, and he assures me that it wasn't a set up. On clearer versions of the video, to the left of the fecking great puddle you can see the footprints where the cameraman went ashore minutes before them. He was lucky not to land in it. Or they were unlucky, depending on your point of view.
