    “ Its a combination of . . . err . . . blank and . . . err . . live firing . . . ”

    That doesn’t sound right, in fact it sounds bloody dangerous – a recipe for very serious incidents.

    My “toes curled”, I nearly didn’t bother watching the rest of the video. In fairness, the “Geordie lad” does go on to explain/clarify that it is in two (separate) phases.

    To begin with, basic drills/blank ammo phase. Only then followed by live ammunition/Company attack phase.
