    Watched it last night.Good show.Served overseas with the Estonians.Tough Feckers.
    "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".
    -- Field Marshall Earl Wavell.1948

    Recorded it and watched it tonight,
    What stuck in my mind was the speech by the Estonian PM?. Where he spoke about past occupation, and said
    " Next time we will not go quietly "
    Also the British camo seems to work in most environments.

    we have a lot of Reserve Riflemen out there too.

    infact, our 'Annual Camp' this year was 2 weeks in Estonia on the NATO mission.
