Royal marine slack drills shocker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now i was an avid believer that the Royal Marines were an elite group of men who knew there stuff about all things military. That was until watching tonights topgear and the hilarious review of the ford fiesta mounting a beach assault with the afore mentioned Marines. Oh how my opinions were shattered when amazingly Mr Clarkson asks one of the marines if he would like to provide support fire from the comfort of the car. how shocked was i that when the Marine cocked his weapon there was no forward asist. i am shocked and appaled that the BBC and the Royal Marines let this happen. oh how will i tell the children :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:

Possibly because with the A2 there is no requirement to forward assist,

ah ha but it is part of your drills and part of the make ready order. failing to do this would result in a failure of your assessment, not looking for an argument just thought it was funny

Erm what is wah
Noone seen this one then?


Booties use OX23, which is designed for very humid / wet conditions - sensible bearing in mind the Booties do the water thing.

One of its side benefits is that, as it is somewhat better a lubricant than the OX21 the Army uses, there is no need for the fwd assist.

Its also a lot more expensive, so will not be on general issue.
