awesome, makes me proud to be a bootneck. its a shame that what the veteren in the interview said about the youth of today doing exactly what they did if the situation arose was sadly wrong, i very much doubt that our country's chavs, hoodies and benefit scroungers would step up to the mark and make the sacrifices that these men did years ago.

This video brought back many memories, I did the course at Gibraltar Camp, Towyn, North Wales in 1945. The main difference was we only got 3/- (15 pence) per day! Anybody with memories of the Assault course still around, especially the tunnel full of mud, with 69 grenades popping off all around.
