Soldiers - A History of Men in Battle - INFANTRY

I should be painting - but I'm too tired - so I thought I'd have a quick look at a documentary on Youtube. This episode of Soldiers - A History of Men in Battle as some great shots of British Infantry at work and in training so I thought it might be the right time to put it up on the blog.

So here it is

Worth watching just to see the bayonet training!

Have fun



  1. Excellent! Thank you for sharing that YouTube find. I remember that it was shown in the USA on my local PBS station while I was in Basic Training for the Army in 1987. My mom recorded for me and I thought it was one of the best series ever. My VHS eventually gave out and I have been periodically looking for it on video. I thought the last eps. was one of the most moving interviews that I saw.

    Thank you again,

  2. No worries mate. It was shown in Australia while I was still in high school and I thought it was excellent. I'd buy it if it were available and as its not - when I find whole eps I'll stick them up here.
