I know this isn't quite the form but I was in the film - must have been made about 1988/89 if I remember correctly. I got paid 50 for my part.

What ruined the film for me, a lot of it was shot at the old Beckton Gasworks near London. If the film is watched closely, the old cars and trucks burnt out or othwerwise destroyed were of old British manufacture and palm tree's were planted in rubbish skips.

The first half of the film in the barracks was filmed at Bassingbourn Bks - a lot of the vietnam scenes were filmed in East Anglia

I did training at Bassinbourn and knew it quite well.

This disused Beckton Gasworks potrayed the ruined city of Hue

Some of the City scenes were supposed to have been filmed in the Docklands before they rebuilt it. Us extra's all went to see the film as soon as it was out at the cinema. We quite disgusted that we watched it all through and never got to see ourselves LOL

I seem to remember that outside station HQ at Bassinbourn there was an arch or something that was built at Changi by POW's, is it still there?

Who was supposed to receive a Section Eight, and why?
The Guy's nickname was Hand Job. And as Private Cowboy said, "Last week he was sent down to Da Nang to see the Navy head shrinker, and the crazy fer starts jerking off in the waiting room."

I believe that Jokers fear was that Raftermans Mom would find him after he rotated back to the world and beat the st out of him.
