I haven't watched it yet.No, but what you saw tonight was typical of life in the Regiment.
I wouldn’t have been happy to wear the cameras.
We've found a few, once they've been through a power harrow/ rotavator a couple of times it'd surprising if one went bang when you're moving it out of the way of the seeder days afterwards.Why would anyone finding anything resembling a grenade take it in a car and show it to people? Why would you go fishing with a magnet - most valuable 'treasure' is not made of ferrous metals, so why?
Has there been an increase in the use of explosives by criminals other than terrorists? There was a weirdo up here who made a load of explosive and the RN team were dealing with it for what seemed like ages. Another time, the girl in Teacos asked me if I had been making bombs and said her neighbour had half blown his house up.
Stupid people + Chemistry = Danger!
I haven't watched it yet.
I'll have a chat with G and watch it with him with a beer. The comedy value alone with him hurling abuse at the RLC blanket stacking ******* (his words not mine) will be worth it.
I'm getting him a bottle of Rum just for shits and giggles, he goes mental on Rum.
what the magnet fishers find a lot of is dumped safes and money boxes, stripped of their contents and discarded sawn-offs and other dodgy guns. They also find any amount of tin cans,washing machines and sundry once-white goods, bicycle frames,old mopeds and a lifetime supply of nails, tools, hardware and the like. They also find unexploded ordnance, as you have seen and the intelligent ones will usually retreat to a safe distance.....
Typical TV voice over. Given they make Masterchef sound like a tour in Helmand, a real life documentary about EOD teams is clearly going to suffer similar treatment!Watching the first episode now at work. Whilst I find most of it fascinating, it's the over dramatic commentary, which I know is to make it exciting to watch, but it just hacks me off.
