close quarter combat

hi I was just wondering how much attention and detail gets paid to close quarter combat (hand to hand fighting). and what type of stuff are RM's taught? is it a particular style or just a collection of techniques put together that are effective.thanx guys as usual.

CQB is quick reactive fire at close quarters. When a firefight begins the momentum starts and continues until you come out of the other side. On the way through people get wasted and shot to peices but the fight continues. If you run out of ammo you used your bayoined or whatever you can get hold of so that you can rip and tear anything apart that gets in your way.

When it over, its over and that's that. But I'm sure you all know that.

Those items come under "watever you can get hold of".

The tin hats!! LOL. I think they phased them out for the plastic ones in the mid 80's. I remember them though, they were a pain to keep on yer head.

With respect my friend I believe the helmets at that time were very similar.

But not the same.
