Fighting the Taleban

Discussion in 'Current Affairs' started by Vesper, Jan 30, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Highly recommend watching this, an excellent documentary I saw on Channel 4 the other night. Dispatches- Fighting the Taleban. Shows the Royal Marines/British Army etc in some heavy fighting. Interesting that some of them are unshaved, rather bad form for an officer to do that! But I spose this is to copy the SAS desert style or to fit in with the locals.

    It was just as good first time around Vesper. Looks like the BBC sold it to Channel 4.

  3. Rumour has it that they grow beards as in the Pathan? culture, facial hair engenders more respect. Therefore the more grizzly you are, the more esteem you are held in. Thus Bumfluff = no respect, Captain pugwash = loadsarespect!
     
  4. Even better was the Panorama Documentry: 3 Commando - Fighting the Taliban.
     
  5. more likely is he has either been there for some months and ran out of razors or he had a hectic week when he was trying not to be shot rather then shaving.
     
  6. Reminds me of the squaddie who used to write to manufacturers, praising their products in the hope of getting some freebies.
    Wrote to Wilkinsons praising their razer blades. Told them that he always used their blades and loved the way that they kept sharp. Explained the blade that ho was currently using was six months old.
    Wilkinsons promptly replied thanking him and enclosing a further six months supply................................1 blade.
     
  7. Good one "slim" , lol , worth a try though all the same , went down St Budeaux this afternoon for some blades (mach 3) , £14 for 8 , I could'nt believe it , robbing bxxxxxxxxs , good blades but bloody hell , :???: :wink:

    My point earlier Spenny, was that this looks like the same programme, repackaged.
