They do like the sound of their own voices don't they? I was expecting someone to lose a limb too. Interesting that the gun didn't seem to recoil in the way that 105's do in footage I've seen. I suppose it's heavier.
We were staying at Camp Lejeune after Ex Purple Star in 96 and were invited to the USMC best detachment competition, out of the 11 events there 7 Cdo Bty won 8 of them including the race to get their own equipment in and out of action!
Howver they did massively kick our ass at basketball!
In BLMF mid 90s I was working with a septic AMIB group, when they discovered that we had a sports league with different sports they challenged us to a game of "hoops".
Considering most of them were a group foot higher than us and of African Extraction, we didn't hold up much chance of winning. That was before they saw the game before ours which was a little more physical in a contact way than they were used to they promptly abandoned the match and buggered off
we should not as many moving parts to go wrong as with the nasty.
fog clouds my mind but seem to remember and old bsm from 34 battery was the guy who sold it to the yanks on his own. He had a party trick "one man and his gun" (with an FH70) if you know what im on about you will know who i mean) he got a MBE forit i think.
