  4. Is there an hour on Tropper? That cold November night is worthy of a show of it's own.
     
  5. I looked at this last night on BT Vision. Very moving. It did give the impression of the viciousness and confusion facing the army as individuals.

    Hats off to all involved, a good job well done.
