    But, are they running towards the opposition, or in the other direction?

    That's got to be the campest army in the world, reminds me of the Monty Python sketch.

    Someone please tell me that was not a video of the Italian, practising running to music!!!! It's hardly going to help their image is it:biggrin:

    If you look carefully, you can see someone carrying a spare inner tuba...


    Actually, that is a pretty skilful exercise with the mouthpieces- 10/10. At the sound of a gunshot, they all roll around in agony for ages - hoping that the enemy will get sent off ;)

    Everyone thinks the Light Infantry quick march (and Ghurkas as well) is funny, that is until you meet them in the field.

    I don't think that I, as an individual, would like to face any army. Wouldn't be a fair fight I shouldn't have thought.
