Morning,

Currently at a loss due to injury so I’m not training.

Any recommendations for decent RM Documentaries or anything based on the RM?

I’ve watched through Commando: On The Front Line that’s all so far.
Any help much appreciated!

Behind The Lines is amazing!

Not RM but the 80's THE PARAS is one of my favourites. You can find it on BBC i-Player
The tash game in the corps was strong back then by the looks of Behind the Lines!

Legend! I remember seeing him in an old old copy of G&L.
He went a long way from not being able to give a "Why things are seen lecture" to become RSM hahaha!

Funnily enough the 1980's TV show The Paras was soundly mocked by the blokes at the time because it left out the 'corridor phys' and general, everyday bee-sting. Apologies for dodging the filter there.
Much in the way that Commando School got a bad press but if anything it perhaps proves that times change but attitudes don't. :)

One of the NCOs in The Paras was Al Slater. A top bloke who sadly lost his life in an SAS operation in NI in 1984. He had a public school education and was academically qualified for Officer but chose his own path.
