Irish Guards... you can tell by the way they fall when they 'Cop it' ;)

I swear to God,. The last time I saw this I was playing poker and drinking beer on Avalanche Control at Rogers Pass in 1971. We had dozens of these training films and they were greatly appreciated  ;D not only by my det but also all the civilian road crew workers whose quarters we shared. They were more entertaining than the commercial movies that were sent up to us.

Also by some of the alleged English they were speaking...though the gibberish the Commie bastards were speaking was interesting as well.

What, like it’s someone else’s fault for catching the lead?

Straight out too, no weak kneed crumpling, so the Bearskin doesn't get damaged :)

(When I watched this at Sandhurst, an Irish Guards CSgt let us know that his unit was the one in the movie.)
