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

    Great over battlefields, but deadly at a football match.
  4. And they bounce of trees brilliantly :)
  5. Used to be Flare, Hand, Illuminating I think. Just happens to be made by Schermuly

    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.

  11. I wasn't being pedantic but I know a bloke who wasted his time and effort to be pedantic.
  12. Breaks the searchlight of a Chieftain when it hits the armoured door as well!!
  13. Who? :D
  14. Bloke in my bn was killed by a schermuly in about 89.
