Here are some photos from last weekend's filming for Donald Plata's documentary Forgotten Soldiers. This was in the Hongkong area. Endless kudos and thanks go out to the guys of LRRP-HK and BMTU for all the artistry, sacrifice, and dedication. We salute you!
Thank you Rick and thank you Vic for the compliments and for posting the photos for us.
We (LRRP-HK & BMTU) all had a great time in doing the filming with Don. We just had a little set back as it rained so hard in the morning and we had to wait it out for a long time till it stopped. Thank GOD!!!!
Anyway, we would like to thank Don too for this filming experience...it was a blast!
Thanks again for all the awesome comments! Yes i will try to do some B&W photos.
Congratulations OneZero and to the Hong Kong based LRRP-HK & BMTU group for their fantastic impressions, as usual.
I think the rains helped in making you look more battle hardened and jungle sweaty. ;D
Don Plata will also be doing some filming here again in L.A., (perhaps at fort MacArthur) on Sunday May 10th for a few more PS and PA sequences needed to complete his project. Anyone who can make it, please join us.

Very impressive! I love the machine-gun shot. As a Vet. re-enactor, the only suggestion i could make for future photos, is to get a second shirt and britches for campaigning. Then only wash them when they smell and never iron them. The Battaan P.S. lived in there kit for 3 months. Although perfect for all other purposes your uniforms look a little to spick-n- span for the image you seek to create. Keep up the good work!

Great shots Gentlemen! Really impressive group you have there. Thank you for posting and for the all the efforts you guys in HK made and the footage Don made are really impressive work. Mabuhay ang PS HK!
We looked at that but would spend the whole day picking up trash from the beach. It is really in sad shape. So many plastic bottles and other crap has washed ashore. The beach is really not accesable to the public so nobody pays attention to it.
