  2. Joan Armatrading's theme song from the 1978 film 'The Wild Geese'. This is another of my favourite films, a great cast, Richard Burton, Roger Moore, Richard Harris and Hardy Kruger, plus a host of other British actors.

  3. A not so well known march - Löwengeschwader - the March of Kampfgeschwader 26 In one of the photos, Walter Neusüß is depicted in an official press photo from around October 1939 (third photo from start of clip). Was very surprised when I saw this. Has unfortunately been deleted by youtube - see further down for another recording, mp3 16.9.2019

  4. Here's another manual I recently found printed in 1940, It belonged to Gunner J.R.White No 2057255 of 37th S/L Regiment Royal Artillery HQ Coy. Stationed at Quebec Barracks Bordon Hampshire, the booklet was reproduced from Small Arms Training Vol 1 1937 by permission H.M Stationery Office, there are a lot more pictures in it than the 1937 booklet. Here are a few of the pages I've scanned.

  5. Not something I know allot about Allan, but I think your employer should at least point you in the right direction and let you know where to buy the correct items. I would imagine with safety equipment it would be pretty important you get the correct items otherwise someone could be in big trouble if someone got injured.

  6. Hi all, I am working in a steel manufacturing company. We work in very dangerous conditions and are always open to danger. I have just started working in this field. My employer has asked me to get the safety equipment like the safety shoes, hard caps, and even the dress. But I have no idea where to purchase them from. I have been searching for them in the nearby shops here and I got the safety shoes. Now I have to get the shirts. I was checking on the internet and found some safety shirts online. But before I purchase them, I would like to know if it is a good idea to buy the safety sh

  7. I thought PPE should be provided by your employers as they have a responsibility for your safety. Same would go for a full risk assessment which would then dictate what PPE should be worn.

  9. Heidedragoner! Never heard of them before. They are situated somewhere in the Lüneburg Heath - and wear (copies) of the traditional uniform of 2. Hannoversches Dragoner-Regiment 16 - they have to be talented riders and musicians. Here playing some traditional marches, recorded just recently. Of couse, they should be wearing either helmets or peakless caps.

  10. An original photo of two Prussian artillerists of a field artillery unit, ca. 1915/16. They are wearing the M.1910 fieldgrey uniforms with a greymetal fitted helmet and in full marching order. The shoulder straps have been removed from the tunics. They are equipped with a gas mask and a Kar 98a carbine as used by cavalry and field artillery. Place unknown. An original photo of two muscians from an infantry regiment. The field caps bear the Prussian cockade. They are wearing the bandmens wings in toned lace. To the left is a hornist, carrying a bugle over the right shoulder. The bugle was

  14. As a result of the recession I have found lots of bargains on war film DVDs in the last month. Many are in the £3 to £5 range. Boxed sets like Band of Brothers are half price. I have been able to upgrade my library but am still looking for a decent DVD of "Cross of Iron".

  15. keep an eye out for a czech film called tank brigade, the acting isn't very good but the german equipment used is fantastic, supposedly used equipment left by the germans at end of the war. As long as your forget your watching a propaganda film its great for spotting.

  20. Generally think no such thing as a bad war film though some better than others. Noteable exception would be Combat Zone allegedly a cult vietnam war film. Never seen such a dire film. Must have had a budget of no more than £50 and obviously set in a European wood. Crap story line too wasted 8 quid on it a couple of years ago and still bitter I did.

  27. It was 5 40 minute episodes i saw a few years ago if i remember correctly Graeme.Then the directors full version and a cinema version which was released first on video then dvd.The directors full version followed on dvd a few years ago.I also saw it back around 88 but cant remember episode lengths! As usual it would come down to the time constraints of the broadcaster,they have freedom to edit as they wish.

  28. This is the one I saw before the film, In 1988, Das Boot aired in six episodes each 50 minutes long. These episodes had additional cutback scenes summarising past episodes. This version was first broadcast on BBC in October 1984 in German with English subtitles.

  35. Kenny, could we not vote more than once if we want to nominate more than one film? Mind you why not just leave it to one choice?

  36. It's amazing that Cross of Iron was so good being made by a group of people who had not been involved in war films. Or maybe that's why - no preconceptions. This could be a hotly debated thread!

  37. Sorry Lads....Cross of Iron was good, no dout.I however think the 1981 war film Das boot was the best ever made.Wolfgang Petersen sure did a great job on that film. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Das_Boot don OK.......http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross_of_Iron http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross_of_Iron

  40. Made in 1977, starred James Coburn. The only war film Peckinpah ever made. Very,very realistic! Of course the hopelessness of the Germans on the Eastern front was a comparison to the Americans in Vietnam. Even Russian women soldiers naked in the bath! Babes without uniform! Only bad bits were the WW2 shots of US Corsair aircraft meant to be Russian "Sturmovicks". Did use actual T-34 tanks though. Wish someone would do a digital upgrade but great as it is. Lt. Stranski, I'll show you where the Iron Crosses grow!!!!!!!!!! (In the Treasure Bunker of cours
