Just on Breakfast - BBC. Gave the grenadiers rank as L/Cpl. Have they changed the guards rank structure from Cpl, L/Sgt, Sgt etc

Being discussed on three separate threads....oi PTP...get it sorted :)

Better than I'd expected....gave a fair view of the reconstruction effort and got in amongst it (more than I've been)......I didn't feel propagandized by either viewpoint....good effort Ben.

the rank is L/CPL.They just wear two chevrons as opposed to one. I know, I used to be one.

Yes, I found out tonight when I commented to my Dad, a Coldstreamer of 1950s vintage. He voiced His indignation without raising his voice and managed to make me feel 15 all over again :oops:

Can't beleve the tossers who worry because a woodentop is called a LCpl, a Cpl or a f***ing LSgt. It was one of the reasons they were so resented, cos some were only interested in showing off their importance and rank.

Apart from the useless comments, wonderful programme and for once, I have some time for the woodentops. Some of those guys earned a lot of respect. Well done lads.

I was more concerned that the vast majority of their casualties seemed to be NCO's :( Is that sort of attrition rate normal for those ranks ? Surely you lose a lot of experience that way......

The ANA didn't look to be very high quality did they, indeed close to being a liability in some situations.

who is worried? The guy just asked a minor question and it was answered.
End of.

I think it was rather funny when they were in that firefight about 20 mins into it and that Captain gave the ANA bloke a bollocking for firing off such a large burst of fire... 'ARE YOU ****ing MAD??' haha made me chuckle anyway

After watching 'Above Enemy Lines' I thought, that will take some beating.

Panorama last night was superb & as a serving crab, my total respect goes out to you all.

Awesome sense of humour during a bloody heavy contact...
