Henry,
Congratulations.
I do object though. You are younger than me... I am still stuck working, so you need to be stuck working too. :crybaby:

Anybody remember this show??? These guys were my Heros---No wonder I drive like I do!!!:steer::steer::steer:

Look at the cool hat and handmade knife my crew got for me!!!!


THE RAT PATROL followed the adventures of an elite team of commandos of 111th Armor Recon, attached to the Long Range Desert Group, as they wreaked havoc with Rommel's Afrika Korps during WW II.
Led by the charismatic Sergeant Sam Troy, our heroes often found themselves pitted against their German nemesis DAK Hauptmann Dietrich.

The Rat Patrol-ran for two seasons, a total of 56 color episodes, on ABC from September 12, 1966 to September 16, 1968. The show starred Christopher George as Troy, and Eric Braden as Dietrich; writers included Larry Cohen and Lorenzo Semple Jr.

An immeasurable benefit to the series was its being filmed on location in the deserts of Spain. The production was even able to utilize vehicles and props left over from big-budget WW II spectacles previously shot in Spain, such as Battle of the Bulge and The Great Escape. Such visual realism offset the storylines' frequent improbabilities.

This show was one entry in a spate of war programs broadcast in the late '60s. Others included Combat!, Garrison's Gorillas, Hogan's Heroes, 12 O'clock High, and Jericho.

O.K. Maybe I should say any of you old Fawkers remember this show???:doh:


Larry???

Yes. I remember being glued to the TV watching the first airing of the episodes. Re-runs never held the same level commitment for me.
Later, I found it much more interesting to read about the recon teams that the show was modeled after.
