  1. Hey lads

    Defense of the Realm

    Anybody heard about or seen this Beeb series?? Can't find it anywhere. Thought some of you lads may know where to find it as last episode was was apparently based on the Pathfinder Platoon??

    Anyone know where I can see it online or get hold of a copy??

    Cheers Otter

  4. I remember watching that series and the last episode in particular was striking since implicit in the film rather than explicit was that a pathfinder platoon had been formed by mis-employing soldiers from within the Battalion establishment while at the same time, the MOD had managed to find the money to set up and man a brand new large headquarter with nothing to command.

    The absurdity while not directly expressed by the programme makers was blatant, obvious and gross to anyone who watched it.
