Cpl Fraser: " Ok fella's Just two things left. This Assault course. Its Individual effort set off at timed intervals we do expect  you to help each other out at any tricky bits"
Cpl McCloud : " Simple as , fellas, simple as ! Packs on . Off for the arial confidence, back on for the final push.
Cpl Fraser -" Lets get to it Then Colour Hart will be on the Pull up station and Captain Gaunt at the Final 18" wall."

First Obstacle: The Slalom Course. Nathan Blythe is last to set off at 30 second intervals .

Alf Tupper bounds over the wall .As a squad leader he knows he must set a good example. Alf was part of the Mid 80's car boot recruitment drive. He is a true Cheshire thru an thru- "heart of Oak!"

Charlie Topbloke starts to get to pull himself over the wall. Charlie came in the 2016 "action Man bundle" recruitment drive. Still with his original elastics and a set of dragon grippers sets him apart from the other blokes. He want his status back as an Action Soldier of the Mid 70's the Golden Era of VAM.

Mark emerges from the net. He knows if he is ever to be accepted by Hank or Joe he needs to prove that he is made of sterner stuff than his brother Mike. He can never forgive the Hasbro designers for doing such a rubbish design job… but hey you can only live the VAM life you are given. He is determined to rescue the Power name.

Those poor guys are really going through it..they'll be too exhausted to fight the enemy soon!

Great pics, they really convey a sense of movement and pace.

Very nice photos , love the poses too. It's very hard trying to get an action man look like he's running but I think you pulled it off. Nice one bounce
