    Thats a pretty badass video in fairness.
    Well, there's good news and bad news. The bad news is that Neil will be taking over both branches, and some of you will lose your jobs. Those of you who are kept on will have to relocate to Swindon, if you wanna stay. I know, gutting. On a more positive note, the good news is, I've been promoted, so... every cloud. You're still thinking about the bad news aren't you?

    You want to go up against 1 Ranger?? What do you think a six man team can do eh??
    "Let us be clear about three facts:First of all.All battles and all wars are won in the end by the Infantryman.Secondly the Infantryman bears the brunt of the fighting,his casualties are heavier and he suffers greater extremes of fatigue and discomfort than the other arms.Thirdly,the art of the Infantryman is less stereotyped and harder to acquire than that of any other arm".

    In other news:



    The Minister said he was committed to increasing the strength of the Unit.

    “I am satisfied that on-going coordination and liaison meetings take place between the Defence Forces and An Garda Síochána to ensure that the security of the State is given top priority. In recognising the dynamic nature of the security environment, initiatives to enhance and support interoperability include the development of agreed protocols, joint seminars on response to a terrorist attack and exercises on crisis management.

    Can't see the ARW dropping standards.

    No shortage of guys going on selection AFAIK

    There nothing can be done

    Answer him better to reinstate ARW allowance to the full amount

    Nice video. I followed it as far as " I'm a man of the Fianna", then there is something about unity, maybe comradeship? And courage?

    It's great how much the videos have come on from a year or 2 ago when they were still flogging the life less ordinary thing with the shite music!
    I've never seen the visible lasers turned on on their rifles - is it actually that visible or was some video editing creative license applied?
