I also cook...

Post  MJDixon on Thu Jul 28, 2011 9:44 pm

Random little coincidence, I was browsing the interwebs for information about my Grandad - who fought in the Battle of Arnhem in the 1st Airborne Division.

Anyway, I found out that just after the war a few of the Soldiers from the 1st Airborne went back to Arnhem to film a War Film called 'Theirs is the Glory'

Upon browsing youtube for said War Film I found this clip:



Unfortunately my Grandad had a different surname to me, but if not that would have been relatively epic to say the least! Laughing

Although you never know, he might still be in the film!

Can't wait for them to add the PIAT now! Bring it!

Interesting.
They sure deserve their glory, must have been hell on earth to be trapped there.

Yeah would be nice with a PIAT in game. The antitank rifleman isn't of much use - or rather my skills with it sucks Embarassed
