Makes you think - re-enacting a gun drill as a competitive sport only a year after it was done in action.

That would be the equivalent of Royal and the Paras having a commemorative yomp/tab competition from Port San Carlos to
Port Stanley from 1983 onward. Or, the RAF seeing how fast they can get pissed in a hotel in Italy each year, to commemorate Air Ops Libya.

I think Royal was quite keen on re-enacting their "Wings of the Apache" stunt but the RAF regt complained it was making them look bad, since wing walking went out with the Swordfish...
