Compelling viewing
25 July 2013 | by sharonhaseleySee all my reviews

This is just a fantastic piece of work From Chris Terril, compelling viewing it takes you from start to finish through the gruelling 32 week training which Chris also completes,a true insight as to what it actually takes to get through.The shocking thing for me was the numbers that don't make it through as opposed the very small numbers that do,only the best of the best and i as a mom of a royal marine recruit undertaking the exact same training found it hard at times , sad at times but truly truly proud of each and every one that passes out knowing what they have gone through, a super piece of work .Follow up please Chris....
