Transcript from ‘2 Para Battle For Goose Green’ podcast

Nigel – We had 20 odd prisoners but the heavy arms firing hadn’t died down they were still mortaring Darwin hill. They were still mortaring our positions eith artillery and then they flew in special forces in Huey’s and a couple of Chinooks. Then with these prisoners, these two Pakaras came around and didn’t attack. They came back again about 10 minutes later and they one of them dropped Napalm! They dropped a Napalm bomb and it actually dropped about 20 meters from me, well I’d say about 15 meters from me.

The momentum went away from me and missed the prisoners, but it singed me and it singed a couple of the other guys, so that’s how close it was. That combined with John Knox telling the Argies where we were, just made us enraged. What the hell are they doing dropping Napalm? This is fucking crazy you know, it’s outlawed.

Transcript from ‘Britain’s Elite Pathfinders’ podcast

Steve – There was one time we were out in Afghanistan and we’re heading towards a town. We’re getting to an obvious sort of choke point and this is dodgy, but we’ve got to go through it. You can’t just turn off a mission because you think it’s dangerous. Obviously the mission is dangerous by nature and while we’re doing that, the guy picked up a transmission on the radio and someone said they are coming.
