  1. Anybody remember this 1960's era training film? Not good to watch after a night on the piss or a dodgy kebab, there was always somebody rushing for the exit ready to hurl. The battlefield wounds were bad enough, but the blobby knobs tended to put one off the forthcoming NAAFI growler. Does it still get shown or has it been sent to the big history vault in the sky?
     
  2. Yep, they used to show it to us before every tour
     
  3. The one with the 7.62 lodged in the GI s eye socket?
     
  4. Was that the one that starred Michael Jackson in his transition period?

  5. I think this has been mentioned on here a few times before.

    It's almost as good as the Impetiligo film they used to show us.

    I saw it before my nam tours.

    etc etc.
     
  6. It's well, well out of use now. I may still have a VHS copy somewhere if someone wants it.
     
  7. Your price for banging it onto DVD is?
     
  8. Mucus there is software available so you are able to record off youtube, not that i have ever used it *cough*

    Kind regards,

    remember seeing that on cadet camp at RAF Halton in the eighties. I was one of the few that didnt hurl, but I was close to it.
     
  11. If I can find it, a few quid to Hols 4 Heroes will do. I'll have a look in the week.
