What got me was the "blew my glasses off" ... then stand in exactly the same place.

The bloke hiding behind the Sherman as the 152mm went off was far more snsible.

There's one by Lindybeige on Muzzle Brakes, whet they're for, and where not to stand.
The SloMoBros would have done well to watch that before shooting up that pickup.

Off beat subject matter here. There's another video on British Army helmets on this YT channel also. The jumping gear worn by the chaps in the photo image at 1:23 reminds me of a plastic paratrooper (complete with 'working' parachute) that I got in Woolworths when I was a boy - does much to explain why that toy did not look anything like the paratroopers in my Commando comics.  Cheesy

15mm is dead. It just doesn't know it yet.

My take is the term "netter".

The British Army's sniper rifle in WW2  ... and beyond. First video is the NRA's, second is from Forgotten Weapons. After the videos is a link to an article by Tony Barton (of AB Figures) on Harry Furniss who was apparently Britain's most successful sniper in WW2, and how he made his 1/6th scale figure of him. Another first for Harry is that appears to be the first British soldier to marry a German national after the war (link also included giving Harry's story on that).

I came across this. During the Vietnam war, in October 1965, to highlight the dropping of the six millionth pound of ordnance, Commander Clarence J. Stoddard, flying an A-1H Skyraider, dropped a special, one-time-only object in addition to his other munitions.

I was unable to establish how successful he was in dumping his load .....

Oh s***?

You can even buy a 1/72 model with the actual ordinance depicted under the wing:
