Bad Lads Army: Extreme

Wed Jul 12, 2006 3:52 am

Will anybody else be watching this tonight? Sounds excellent, particularly as the lads are even bigger criminals then previously! Lets see how they stand up to the NCOs!

Sounds like the course is tougher too, as it is Parachute regiment, so probably has a survival element to it.

I wish my Dad was still around to watch this, since he was a National Serviceman in the 1950's.
Not for Para training, nor fighting in the Malayan jungle, the furthest he got was being based in Germany.

A National Serviceman was nearly killed fighting in Korea, he was from London, Pvt. Micklewright-but you know him as Michael Caine.

The first series, four years ago, was made more interesting with well known people recounting their time spent, (2 years) in uniform.

But Dad was once on a huge exercise in Germany where quite a few were killed in training accidents.
Including a tank crew deciding to sleep under it, the engine just having been cut, it's heat was to help them sleep, but it rained hard in the night, the tank was on soft ground, so it sunk down crushing the crew.
Another was the breech explosion of a 40mm Bofors gun, killing the 8 man crew.
Dad was in the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, so left with something to take into civillian life, which he did.

Dad's more positive memories of that winter exercise were staying in a barn, fortified by schnapps from the friendly farmer.

However, many conscripts were not cut out for this life, more than a few killed themselves, a common way was on the firing range, turning the rifle around, putting it the mouth, and firing.
And these were young men much less pampered than today, who had grown up in WW2 and it's shortages and privations.

One advice for National Servicemen was 'not to volunteer for anything' if a NCO asked a squad if anyone could play the piano, anyone who said 'yes' would end up shifting the piano in the Sgt's mess, from one end of the room to the other, on a Sunday morning when everyone else on light duties.
So you ARE keen on photography? Go and sweep out the camp cinema.

But a friend of my Dad's did volunteer for something, and was posted to Hong Kong!

No idea Airbus, I bet he did not care soon enough either.
In those days, very few people ever travelled abroad, wearing the Queen's uniform was about the only way to do it.

National Service ended in the late 50's, the last of them leaving in 1962, it's end was very popular.
There were still heavy commitments, and conflicts abroad, but the entry into service of the nuclear deterrent, enabled the force in Germany to be halfed, to 55,000, half of RAF Germany went too, the Navy were moving to fewer, smaller, more modern ships.

And it won't ever return, unlike the US, which still can implement a draft, political considerations aside, fairly easily, and can equip them too, while the UK does not have the leglislation or equipment, unless you really scraped the barrel.
Because the 20th Century, with WW1 and WW2 and aftermath, was an aberration in British military history in this sense.

I agree, we seem to get a lot of people who want to got into the army/airforce/navy willingly, the only problem, is when this starts to slow down, many countries still have national service, South Korean for instance.

Unfortunately, training accidents, aren't uncommon.
I remember being told a story of a man's head being sliced off by a low slung communication's line as he drove underneath it, he had his head stuck out of the vehicles roof, was looking backwards, when someone called out to him about the low slung cable, unfortunately, he didn't duck quick enough, they only noticed he was dead a minute or 2 later when the driver turned round to talk to him.

Funnily enough, in segments showing the recruit's backstory, their crimes, they usually have (exasperated) parents.

One Sqt who was part of the training staff when Dad did his service, was Bill Speakman, who had won a Victoria Cross in Korea.
