The Paras got on to the Falklands by ship and landing craft proving anyone can do the role of marines if you can handle a trip on the Woolich ferry , no courses required to pass, no tests, no extra pay.
No marines can just arrive anywhere by parachute unless qualified and most are not, because they are in fact cxxts.
My case rests M' lud.
Laurence Olivier who played the village doctor, flew an aircraft for the Senior Service
John Waddy who served with 4 Para and fought at Arnhem ,was an advisor on the film, he drilled the actors, and made them much more realistic, he also advised on several scenes, and had a cameo role in the film
John Addison wrote the music, he served in the 23rd Hussars seing action in Normandy ,and operation Market Garden
Paul Maxwell servied in the Canadian Artillery in WW11 ( played Maj Gen Maxwell taylor)
Arthur Hill who played a medic in the film served in the R.C.A.F.
Oh I just recalled that John Waddy passed away a few weeks back, a long live lived, and a real Gentleman and inspiration to others
Paras prove that chutes are not necessary if you have the right motivation.What no parachute Cupid Stunt
