Indeed - schermuly. 1,000ft handheld illuminating rocket flare wot comes down on a parachute.

Great over battlefields, but deadly at a football match.

Used to be Flare, Hand, Illuminating I think. Just happens to be made by Schermuly

if you hold it over your shoulder and fire it like an M72 law, it bounces off APCs brilliantly as well.

Or, if you're just a bit of a knob.

hehe - forgot about that one. That was only a pistol flare. What's the betting he'd be rubbing a bruised head after getting smashed in the swede with a Schermuly? Doubt it, he'd probably be in a coma or dead.

I wasn't being pedantic but I know a bloke who wasted his time and effort to be pedantic.

Excellent when used in the anti-LandRover role as well.

Remove the parachute and it makes a fine incendiary device!

If you're really clever you can launch it so that the chute pops just as the flare lights up your opponents trench, then cunningly lands and destroys both their night-vision and webbing.

Or so I've been told...........

Take out the flare and put in a thunderflash.

Light it and then set off the rocket bit . The "Enemy" who a. stand still or b. If hear the WHOOSH go to ground.

Really get quite a fright as said thundee goes off and not a bright white light they were expecting....

Or so I was told.
