Way back when in the summer….Part 4- Obstacle course

Obstacle 5 : Hurdles .

Don Strong drops off the clothes pole . His hip joints are on fire . but he picks up his rucksack and heads for the Hurdles with gritted teeth, determined to finish and claim a Blue Beret and enter the ActionYankee hall of fame.



Fast forward to December 2016...

The Parade ground at Munrovian HQ is a busy place as 14 Platoon assemble..



To the right Corporals Fraser & McCloud head off to observe the training Squad tackle Exercise Hall. Stairs and Landing. Some of the most dangerous VAM ground around ...



CPL Fraser " Back soon Sir ! I'm sure they will be ready to win their coveted Action Soldier Blue Berets' "

Cpl McCloud " Aye and we can get back to our unit and kick some Dragonian butt"

Lt Tim Gunn and Sgt Matt Power talk to Colour hart & Captain Morgan of the training Team.


Lt Gunn " and it will be brilliant to get the other guys kitted out too. These M1 Gerands & Grease guns are reliable but we could do with an upgrade to some more modern kit."

CH: "No problem sir , since the major re-barrelling project we are awash with SLR's , M16's and much more!"



Sergeant Matt Power, nods .It will be great to get new weapons and kit..but he is excited as his cousin Mark Power is in the Training Squad . If Mark achieves the coveted Action Soldier Blue Beret, he will go another step in re-habilitating the Power name..if only cousin Mike had lived up to Hank & Joe's standards..."

Meanwhile out in no mans land ...

The Tan section lead by Dave Henderson emerge from the gloom of the spare bedroom & tackle the Landing ...



He sends Tony Scott ahead. The sweep of the spare bedroom had been tense but uneventful. But now they would be exposed and could fail the test at the last moment.



Tony check the stairs from the cover of the bannisters. He shudders as vivid  memories of him hurtling down a similar set as a 'human missile" flood back.Most VAM have similar tales to tell and many did not survive unscathed !!

He adjusts his training kit-These short barrelled M1's are might heavy and the Chad Valley helmet is giving him a headache !



He  signals back.. and Don Strong makes a dash for their final objective. Secure a fire base in the master bedroom and RV with the Green section , led by Alf Tupper. Will they make it ?
