  1. The brigadier early in the video is Rex Roseblade, Mick’s dad.

    He looked after our 4th class A61 middle floor platoon, of which Mick was a member, excellently.

  3. Dear David,

    Thanks for digging this out.

    Haven’t seen this film for a while, and as you can see, I borrowed some of the footage for Days Like This. Gosh it’s a muddled recruiting film and the dour voice overs lack inspiration. I don’t imagine that the recruiting centres were overwhelmed with enquiries after this one was released.

    Little wonder they returned to RMC a few years later to make another one when we were in first class.

    Best, Rod


    • Hi Rod,

      I wonder what is was that prompted us to apply? Probably something like 12 O’Clock High, or The Green Berets – or possibly Hogan’s Heroes! I often think that last one was closest to life at RMC.

      There is one redeeming feature of the clip – it captures some of the life at the College as it was (reasonably truly).




  4. David Loved the video as I had only seen bits before – I wish I had known that Dunners was this exciting and I may have had a better time ! Good for Partners to get some idea of the events we endured – it’s a pity Hodder’s pewter wasn’t full as we didn’t really experience the moment . Thanks for sharing and keeping us all in touch and remembering things and events we have forgotten . Best Wishes, John Mc
