Very good progamme. Is it made by the same folk who made Coppers? Bit sick of all the BBC wives crying ones, Sandhurst is good, but this is really speak to the guys & girls and get a real opinion on it all.
Shame there's only 3 episodes of it.
I look forward to the last episode featuring C Coy 2scots kicking off in loy mandeh in Jan-March 2011. So far the doc has been good I found it interesting seeing how the Apache pilots operate after seeing them from the ground, much respect. Fair play to the RAF reg for their role protecting the MERT however it doesn't justify your funding as any TA Infantry could be tasked to do the same. Also the irish bird you hear in the interviews was quite tour sexy, I had the priveledge of "having her" (in a non conquest sense) in my Jackal and on a few tasty patrols several times and she definitely had a thing for the jock accent but was a bit frigid no doubt due to her harsh irish upbrigning,honest .......
I was on patrol in the dear green boggy land over the sea the night Bobby Sands snuffed it , and we were absolutely cacking our Y's hearing the "dustbin lid chorus " that followed that little incident .
However it was nothing compared to those guys trapped in that river waiting for the reccy to come and get them out . They must have felt like sitting ducks at the fair .
Me and Mrs Ming were on the edge of our sofa , thats how good a prog that is . Ch 4 have done it again .
Stay safe lads and keep yer arrse's doon .
I second that, I settled down to watch the prog last night (Sunday 2nd) and was on the edge watching the action unfold, amazed that a "hide" comprises of rounding the Warthogs up into a circle wild west style. Shame the river crossing didnt come off as hoped but full praise for the troop OC and crews for professionalism when their luck well and truly ran out.
If you didnt see it last night then make sure you do so.
