He was near the grid reference of the simulated helicopter crash.
Hope you enjoyed the video'
Could you tell us what the main differences are now.
Enjoyed the vid
Your lucky you live in that area
The area I live in there wouldn't be much to do but march and rifel practice
Better for camouflage. And the fields where Mined.
what is the rifle being used?
I think they would have been 303's.
I was only the camera man making a training film. Nothing to do personally with the ACF. I am surprised that after all these years no one in the video as yet has come forward.
@russenberger Lee Enfield rifle and Bren gun, it looks like a Sergeant Infantry cadre, in those days we got the Army second hand cast offs, mind you training was simpler then, now we have more up to date equipment, kit and SA80 variant along with LSWs to use, but training is more complicated with risk assessment and forms etc……
@vespaUK125 thanks a lot, but it must be said, the SA80 (L85) is a great bit of kit
@russenberger Your Welcome. Merry Christmas!
@Gigagannet you too mate
what year was this filmed at?
@ukdrift123 Like it says in the Title 1983
i was a cadet dureing the 1980's i loved the bren and the .303 lee enfield no4 rifle but hated putee's ;p i would give anything to go back the annual camps the weekends away.bivys and bashers hexy blocks and mess tins and compo im glad to have been part of it.this video brings it all flooding back thank you for the post amazeing post !!!!!!!!!!!
Haha I just left cadets recently as its getting more and more shite discipline wise and health and safety wise. it's funny to see that cadet with the Bren, half of the cadets that I know now wouldn't be able to carry that thing! Lol I had some great times as a cadet seeing mongs getting bollocked by a rifleman, one time in particular stands out, someone had their webbing undone so the rfn emptied the entire contents of his webbing into the field lol
