We did not train to participate in an army in the Scouts. We did not get called up to fight in wars, legal or otherwise. Some of the best fun I ever had was on the Scout’s assault course in Park Wood, in Sussex. The next video is a close approximation of its challenges. The fellow in this video is a wee bit bigger than we were in the Scouts but it doesn’t have those pesky tunnels. All dark in the middle. He’d have got stuck in them. We did not wear helmets in the Scouts. Our helmets did not have head cams. It was scary stuff in the Scouts, you’ll have to take my word. Here goes, in a fraction over half the minimum time, impressively:
We never had other men attacking us with guns and shit in the Scouts. If we had, we’d want the best tools for the job, which in this and other helmet cam videos from Afghanistan these boys have. They’re just kids really. When we was kids in the Scouts we did not have locals on their knees facing the outside walls of our camp the inside. Quite what really is going at the end of this clip may well be in some doubt. The video maker calls them civilians taking refuge in the camp.
