    Hmmm - must have read my cookie then. OK - hang on and I'll edit it down a bit and throw it up on a server.

    Come back a while later on.

    Members only. Luckily I'm a member, cool video. I downloaded the file, but the forum won't upload it for some reason. You may want to give it a shot.

    OK folks - any few who have seen it once - still go grab this again NEW VERSION and those who ain't seen it - go get!! Right click and ''save target as''.

    This one is still an edited edition - only 1.51 min (and 1.25Mb) as against well over 3 minutes - but more important, I have put (IMO) a better sound track on it - it watches quite well I think

    I'm gonna dis' the earlier post I made and leave just this link now - the improved version for me.

    It's "ordnance". Sorry, Chris, I couldn't resist pulling your chain a bit.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    WOW! I know it was late when I read this yesterday, but I can't believe I missed that!! It's been a "pet peeve" for years.

    After all those years in EOD I never got to blow up a law, just bend a few!

    Chris,

    Great video...when in the US Navy aboard the USS America CVA-66, we had an EOD team assigned to the ship. I got to know them and found them to be a good bunch. After watching them work aboard ship and on the beach, I have a lot of respect for those that do that type of work. It can be a taddy bit...is interesting the right word?

    Regards,

    Fred

    Ordnance. -

    Crunch - I stand corrected Sir - tho knew that and it is a peeve of mine too - but probably for every 99 times I type it correctly, there is one that slips thru because of over exuberant (poor) typing skills

    Us Army guys always envied the Navy EOD types. We came up on a bomb and we had to do something "technical" with it. The Navy guys just throw the thing overboard and go have a drink!

    That'll work!
