Watched the vid 2 nights ago and have been meaning to comment (plus i wrote a letter to ya NNF but lost it somehiw before sending and am needing to get back in touch!) On how amazingly well done and fluid of a shoot this was on the SA-5. It was under 10 minutes, minimal editing, crisp, and above all.. fascinating!!!

Well done NNF - loving your work so far - and am impressed as always. No shock there.. the man is back!! :D

Fascinating review and Cold War historical artifact .

So to be clear you had 4 cereal bars, 2 fruit cakes and 2 milk chocolate bars. Then 2 tea packets , two sugar cubes and water purification tablets. was this a three day set? Also was this meant for air crews or naval personnel? Or was this packed into wheeled/tracked vehicles on the DEW line Alaska, Greenland or Northern Canada?
