jock bayonet charge
Never did any of that bayonet malarkey myself, looks like fun.
I done my bayonett training in basic recently. By far the biggest beasting we had during the full 14 weeks training...
Before it all we had to mark-time for hours, run 400 meters and back a million times then leopard crawl up a hil around and down if for roughly an hour.... Just to get us "angry" Should have seen some of the lads before the actual bayonett training, Being sick the lot..
The training itself was great fun... Just alot of running about stabbing things shouting "engarde" "KILL KILL KILL"
normally bayonet training you get ragged around silly so looks fun but fecking tiring.
There was a lot of emphasis on the bayonet at Glencorse back in the day. What an appalling rifting those days were, but unbelievable fun.
We were always so much more mellow afterwards. Perhaps British Military Fitness could set up an Anger Management course?
Just where i did mine...initially with an SLR and "sword" then several years later with an SA and "Pocket Knife".
I can remember some guys shaking with fear, we were so wound up by the time it was our turn. There was even the plastic bag full of pigs blood just to make it more "real".
Just imagine what it must have been like with muskets and 2 foot spikes on the end!!
Haha is this for real? Thank fuck he was on our side if it is

TO these I turn, in these I trustâ
Brother Lead and Sister Steel.
To his blind power I make appeal,
I guard her beauty clean from rust.
He spins and burns and loves the air,
And splits a skull to win my praise;
But up the nobly marching days
She glitters naked, cold and fair.
Sweet Sister, grant your soldier this:
That in good fury he may feel
The body where he sets his heel
Quail from your downward darting kiss
Christ, the Jock seemed like someone out of Monty Python... Quality!
Reminds me of my old RE teacher from school I can just imagine hime witha bayonet on the pulpit, he nover liked me as I told him at the age of 13 that all he was teaching was poohey and you had to have a a screw lose to believe it
i cant imagine what it must have been like for those young lads in the trenches
Sword training was pretty intense, I loved it. Glad I never had to shove it in anyone's face though.
I remember writing to my mum
