    After all, who'd want to survive a nuclear war?
    you'd rather be dead? I'd rather live. Think about it...atleast if your alive you can still chug.

    Surviving the initial blasts outside of the circled areas would appear to be fairly easy, presuming you have a few weeks supply of food and water stored. The months and years following would be the testing time, when all the animals, crops and water supplies have been contaminated.

    For those who may be interested in nuclear survival you should read the Nuclear War Survival Skills book. I personally found the chapters on nuclear radiation and how it can affect us and shelter building particularly interesting.

    Why did they nuke Lands end? Didn't the Russians like the Westcountry shopping village?
    Do you want to be happy or do you want to be normal?

    hello,
    I've been reading through some of these older posts of interest.
    'Hard Rock' 'Square Leg' Exercises I took part in these. Strathclyde Region
    (as was) didn't participate as then it's claim was a 'Nuclear Free Zone' &
    there were no casualties
    All it would have taken was one non nuclear warhead fired directly into
    RN Faslane (peace camp ) & let the West Coast weather do the
    remainder.
    After 1990 there was an exchange of Soviet Union Military with NATO (UK)
    I met a few of these guy's, they were brain washed, you mention the map of
    Glasgow circled targets, when they saw the place it was way off the mark to what
    they were told, if they knew what the truth was they would have thought twice about
    directing their nukes at Glasgow their words.
    BTW they loved our C-Rations I'm sure they were gifted with a crate for the journey home.
    I've got a few photo's on file from the Cold War era including the 10 Ton Tel Cruise
    Transporters in action & when they came to the UK Greenham Common (bit of nostalgia)
    Regards
    David

    I'm in that Glasgow is a high population/densite/value target, as is Faslane and the nearby
    army facilities....

    hello,
    The way these guy's were talking (Brain Washed) I don't know about
    second thoughts, but when given orders to do something when it comes
    to a scenario like so, doing your duty comes first, in their case for the
    'Mother Country' I doubt they would have openly questioned the orders anyway.
    Remember this is in uncertain times 'Cold War' they're just oridinary Joe Crows
    the same as any other Countries Armed Forces doing their duty.
    Regards
    David

    deploying these 10 Ton Tels. RAF Regt 'posing' with US Support Units deployed
    for protection. Tels armed with 'dummy' rounds.
