"The tension during the training of the marines is not less than that of the cosmonauts": a Soviet film about the marines

21

"With the call of the morning trumpet, weekdays come. With their marches, campaigns, battles, in which boys are maturing day by day." These are phrases from a Soviet documentary film from 1973 about the USSR Marine Corps.


Almost half a century has passed since the filming of the film, and this is a kind of reason to compare what was with what is now. It is also an opportunity for modern boys to see their grandfathers, when they, being very young people, paid their debt to the Motherland while serving in the Marine Corps.

From the tape "Daltelefilm":

There are many who want to serve in the Marine Corps. But not everyone is taken there.

It tells about the approach to the selection of future marines during the Soviet era. And the requirements were definitely higher than they are now. This is evidenced by the officers who began their career in the years of the USSR.

From the movie:

And yet, it is not some special people, heroes, who serve in the Marine Corps, but the most ordinary guys, perhaps taller and more shouldered.

The tape tells about the everyday life of the Soviet marines, about their training, training:

The tension during training for Marines is no less than that of astronauts.

High workloads during training ensured effective performance of combat missions.

        I read it inattentively, that's the awkwardness ... I know, with some comrades. The training was of course not sickly. I know one comrade who was attacked by drunken sailors, and he warned them, guys, do not meddle. they served in Africa and took part in operations. Three remained lying on the pier. But this is the elite, who trained and trained. In addition to training, ordinary Marines also get the rough work on the ships on the campaign. They wash the deck, and rustle in the galley, well, the guard was naturally on them ..

          He himself served in 876 ODSHB 61 Marine Brigade, the combat training in all battalions (infantry) is the same, in the DShB the VDP was simply added. The BUP of the Ground Forces is one for the Airborne Forces, for motorized riflemen, for the MP.

              She was a brigade before Serdyukov since 1979. Then, they "optimized" how Syria began, and began to deploy to brigades in all fleets.

                  Judging by the faces in the photo, I’m about my age, maybe a little older, that means we served in the brigade, you did not write about 1973.

        Greetings! If my memory serves me, then the lieutenant colonel of the Marine Corps (pictured) has a typical violation of the uniform - the visor of the truck - non-statutory. He's a Guard Marine Lieutenant Colonel, not a Second Rank Captain.)

          Your memory is cheating on you. Statutory cap. This is a summer dress uniform N ° 3. A ceremonial-weekend cap, a ceremonial-weekend black jacket, a white shirt with a black tie, black trousers, black boots (low shoes), a dress belt, white gloves, a dagger (who is supposed to be according to the norm).

            I understand ... and crabs on the visor of the cap? .. It seems inappropriate ...

              There are wreaths on the visor, since the cap is a ceremonial day off, it is not on the daily basis. The Marine Corps belongs to the Navy, the uniform of the officer corps is naval, only the gap on the shoulder straps is red, like the entire officer corps of the coastal units of the Navy.

                Got it. Didn't know that. True, in Safonovo I saw a colonel - a pilot of the Northern Fleet Air Force - he had a wagon, without these crabs. I don't know exactly what it's called. Because "crab" is a naval cockade.

                  The crab is the emblem of the USSR Navy, was in three types, for pilots, caps for everyday and winter hats, and an embroidered gold crab for a ceremonial-weekend cap. All naval officers wear naval uniforms, these include the floating personnel of surface ships and submarines, the naval air force (blue light on the shoulder straps), coastal units of the navy, marines (red light on the shoulder straps), the only units that are dressed in uniform ground units are MIS (Marine Engineering Service), in simple terms, construction batt. Their only difference is that on the green jacket of the privates and sergeants there is a black shoulder strap with the letter F.

    Girls athletes are no less tense, especially gymnasts and skaters, and there are probably no less injuries. To each his own, nothing can be done.

    Inspired by our Kipling from Rudyard:
    Out of boredom, I spat into the abyss from the poop,
    endured a coinless season,
    Suddenly I see - there is a man next to the cruiser,
    dressed in an army style
    And scrubbing the copper. Well, I gru him:
    “Eh, kid! What kind of it are you? "
    "And I, grit, is our Widow's Bomboshka,
    soldier and sailor at the same time. "
    What is his term and detailed ration,
    of course a special question,
    But it's a shame that he is neither an infantry nor a navy,
    has not grown to these or to those,
    Dangles like he's dumbfrodit
    outlandish soldieromatros.
    Then I saw him at work
    in different dense corners,
    How he tuned hearing with mitrailleuse
    pagan kings.
