Zero Six Bravo: 60 Special Forces. 100,000 Enemy. The Explosive True Story
About this deal
In 1987, when renamed the Special Boat Service, the SBS was also reformed along SAS lines, with 16-person troops (each equivalent to a platoon) instead of the traditional sections.  The Royal Marines Boom Patrol Detachment (RMBPD) was formed on 6 July 1942, and based at Southsea, Portsmouth.  The RMBPD was under the command of Royal Marines Major Herbert 'Blondie' Hasler with Captain J. D. Stewart as second in command.  The detachment consisted of 34 men and was based at Lumps Fort, and often exercised in the Portsmouth Harbour and patrolled the harbour boom at nights.   Corporal Aubrey sharpens his fighting knife as he prepares for combat in the Aegean Sea in 1944 When M SQN of the Special Boat Service (SBS: the Navy equivelant of the SAS) was tasked with infiltrating Northern Iraq and forcing the Iraqi 5th Corps to surrender, they didn't know what they were in for.

I really enjoy reading these types of first-hand accounts of War. They make me proud of my country and of the men who serve and sometimes very angry at my country for not doing enough to support the men who give all for us. Many times I read these accounts and am amazed at the incompetence of the high command and some of the really terrible missions that the military have to carry out due to the decisions of terrible politicians. I am often moved to tears by many of these accounts.if an extra guy is on the vehicle, the gunner cannot use the gun...
