Wild Geese

On SonyHD right now. Lots of Fal action! Just saw a G1 among the L1A1s, FN Fals, Paras. I have seen the movie before..... before I went Fal crazy! Watching it in a totally different way now.

Read some about mad mike hoare's exploits and you'll really watch it in a different light.
You know he was a technical advisor on the film,,and its basically based on one of his last African undertakings. His earlier five comando group were also known as the wild geese,,though it started as an early Irish group....I have one of Mike's original wild geese shoulder patches in the collection,,a present from when I was working for the sof conventions and met him back in the early 90's...
