When I was doing basic training (which started 12 years ago tomorrow ... aaahhh) there was some random bloke that used to follow us around with a video camera - am I right in remembering that it was the guy that owned the Carbeille?
What time did you have to get up during the night for "night patrol" ?jesse650 said:I made it onto one of those as I was doing dartmoor in middle of Feb brrrrrrrr bit on the brisk side.
Do you mean you almost featured in Nozzers?Jenny_Dabber said:Dunno but they were videoing one of those 'basic training' doc's for the BBC when I was going through training, it was never aired though!
so did I just imagine then that the guy from the Carbielle used to video it, or maybe he was just stalking me!!!!SILVER_FOX said:They used to video every Passing Out Parade and then flog the tapes to the families as a "great Souvenir" of the day. The reality was that most were hugely disappointed as the quality was poor and unless you were front row guard, you stood little chance of making it on camera.
What a swizz!
