    On Sunday the 19th of Feb the History Channel is showing a doco about the Bombing of Darwin to commemorate the 70th anniversary.

    I grew up in Darwin, and we didn't learn about it in school, so I'll be interested to learn more about it. I know my grandmother got caught up in it and had to evacuate by train, but that's about it.

    More bombs dropped than at Pearl Harbour, however due to there being F all in Darwin they may as well have dropped them on the moon

    Looks like a good documentary though, already locked in.

    Did they purchase holsters with them? As I've only seen SF troops with BHI Serpas.

    From what I've seen, Safariland holsters are favoured.

    Sea force conquers the desert

    The first bomb you defuse is always the hardest, especially if you're under enemy fire and you know the bomb is powerful enough to turn an armoured vehicle into scrap metal.

    So says Leading Seaman B, and he should know.

    The 30-year-old is part of an elite branch of the Royal Australian Navy based in Rockingham, a group of men whose nerves of steel and specialist training has placed them on the front line in Afghanistan, Australia's flesh and blood weapons in the deadly fight against insurgent bombs.

    I'm Australian which means to reach adulthood I've survived horrors you couldn't imagine.

    RAAFies like to keep Compasses in their holsters.

    No worries Toddy. Hopefully, Ch.7's Sunday Night website isn't region blocked for those who'd like to watch this later.
