Response to Re: Memories
Thanks for the notes fellas. It looks as if I mis-heard it or he was muddled. Just thought it sounded feisable enough to post the question on the forum.
I remember being on exercise and taking the parachute out of a para-flare, peeling enough paper off a thunderflash so that it fit into the empty tube of the para-flare and then striking the thunderflash just before launching it at the enemy. It took a little timing but made the most impressive airburst. The major raised his eyebrows but didn't tell me to quit and I still have all my fingers.
I mention this by way of making the point that unorthodox things happened. Still, I tend to think the mortar laying of comms wire likely didn't happen for the reasons you all gave above.
