The Marching Twenty-Four

I love watching drill. Not for those not up with the play in things military, those bayonets are razor sharp. Stuff it up and the white trousers turn red.

The USMC Silent Drill team or The Marching Twenty-Four is a unit that performs unique silent precision exhibition drill.

The purpose of the platoon is to exemplify the discipline and professionalism of the Marine Corps.

The Silent Drill Platoon first performed in 1948, originally as a one-time show, and received such an overwhelming response that it soon became part of the routine parades at Marine Barracks, Washington, D.C.

Watch the video and see why.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
