  3. Quote (about 9 mins in) - "A Schutzenfest...a small town jamboree...with sausages!" Yep, get your average Tom full of sausages and he's a right punchy bastard! I was off my tits after two currywursts.

    Brilliant film.

  5. Excellent! not sure about the 17/21L being "Tankies" Though. If you watch it all I think you will agree that there should be a BAOR medal. - only joking
  6. Im not sure but i do seem to remember some software called "Expat viewer" or somesuch that will allow you to watch BBC content.
  7. Pissed and taking everything out of context again then? You ******* arsewipe.

    Just taking the piss out of one of the" Stars " on the regimental site
  12. Many thanks indeed for the link. Much appreciated.

    Very well filmed I thought. A lovely scene of an Infantry Attack which cuts away just as some poor unfortunate sinks up to his armpits in water! Difficult to get your head around the fact that all those young faces are now old men past retirement age. I'm not far off it myself and was in my fourth year at Windsor Boys School Hamm when that was filmed!
  13. The bit where the Chieftains were haring over SLTA to the tune of The Archers. Brilliant.
  14. Same here, a little help please.
