He probably thinks his National service and combat in Korea count as well.....

Veteran British actor SIR MICHAEL CAINE is still haunted by his experiences in the Korean War - insisting his life totally changed on the day he narrowly escaped death on the battlefield.
The Get Carter star was called up for national service in the British Army when he was aged 18 and was deployed to South Korea to help in the aftermath of the North Korean invasion.
Caine, who served as part of the Royal Fusiliers, admits he came close to losing his life during the conflict.
He says, "I was nearly killed. There were four of us on patrol in a valley in the middle of the rice paddies. The Chinese were closing in on us and the officer said, 'Let's run towards their line - they won't expect it because they'll be expecting us to run away towards our lines.' So we did that and we ended up going right around them. They couldn't find us because they were looking in the wrong place and we got away. But we'd faced that moment that we thought was the end.
"That night we went back to our bunkers and celebrated with a beer. We were just happy to be alive... I faced a moment when I knew I was going to die and I didn't run, I wasn't a coward, and it affected me deeply. I was at peace with myself and that's guided my life, not just in terms of whether someone's going to kill me, but in everything."

The BNP want to bring back national service . As good a reason as any other for not voting for them

The country is too bankrupt even to afford a pair of boots and a set of denims for any National Service types - and Brown will have flogged off most of the defence estate to developers by then, so there'll be no way of housing and training them.....

Never happen, with all due respect to Sir Michael.

It would be political seppuku, cost far too much and be hugely unpopular with both civilians and Regular soldiers. National Service would only be re-introduced if the country faced an fight for it's very survival. And no matter how the Gub'mint trys to spin Afghanistan, it does not represent a threat to our existance as a nation(the EU probably presents more of a threat in that respect :wink: ).

National service was never about sorting out the yooth of the 1950's, About meeting the commitments of a changing country from Empire to the bag of shat that we are today. Utter rubbish

Harry Brown. Cain plays an ex-Bootneck who goes Postal when his best mate is killed by Chavs; think Death Wish but with better acting. :) Released on Friday, I believe.

Looks good. 8)

I was privileged enough to have been able to witness the 'youf of today' in action this summer in Sangin and their conduct was fantastic. If the rest of the nation's youth is half as good as those lads then we'll be OK for a few years yet.
