Royal Marine helmet-cam auteur hit during Afghan gunfight

'You've been shot in the arse, mate'

SANS - Survey on application security programs

A Royal Marine recently returned from combat in Afghanistan has uploaded some astonishing Doom-style helmet-cam footage, taken during a massive gun battle with the Taliban.

Viewers be warned: unlike the Iraq headquarters PR channel videos, it contains extensive profanity. Also, the cameraman gets hit in a mildly embarrassing location, to the hilarity of his comrades. There isn't any blood and guts to speak of.

Here it is (could be NSFW, depending on how much swearing and gunfire is allowed in your office):

It takes a lot to get the Royal Marines down, clearly.

It seems that El Reg's analysis of warzone reportage may have been right. There is nowadays no way to prevent soldiers from uploading video or other content from the war zones, and nobody is seriously trying to. Recent media lamentations about muzzling of the troops, restriction on free speech etc, were a tad exaggerated. ®
