Yes...was wondering about that too.

Scary - I thought I heard a "zing".
You did!

Hence why they ducked down. Was a lot closer than they were expecting.

Good footage of the rounds flying over the camera though!!!!

I wouldn't class it as effective enemy fire TBH. Rounds whizzing over your head aren't that effective as they don't kill or injure you and the Marines weren't really pinned down, though it is quite scary the first time it happens. It's when they are pinging off your WMIK when you start to flap a bit! The taliban have a tendency to shoot high though thank god. Well done to the Marines though. Can't think of a finer unit to pick up where we left off. I just hope 12 mech Bde can do just as well for their sake.

Do we have any of the glorious 49 Para in action in the 'Stan?

(Obviously observing the limitations of OPSEC/PERSEC)

Fair play to the booty's, it's what you join up for,And yes i know it is scarey stuff but there's a lot of lads who join up and never get to do any real fighting, There's a lot of envous lads who would do anything to be out there . ive got mates that are out in 42 just hope the taliban keep firing high and our lads give them a real demo in effective eny fire.

I beg to differ. I think you'll find almost all current regular infantry soldiers have been involved in some fairly serious contacts, whether in Basra, Amara or more recently Afghanistan.

Me being one of them RFUK, and i agree with you but not everyone in the INF has been on ops i know a few pi***d off mates who have missed out because of postings etc. And those that are not lucky enough to be in a INF BN
