Filming: Help!

The Beatles' three-day shoot on Salisbury Plain began on this day at Knighton Down in Larkhill, Wiltshire.

    I was a warrant officer with the RA at the time. I provided the SPs for the Beatles during this period. I did not like the Beatles for they did not take time to thank my soldiers for getting up at the crack of dawn and assisting them in the making of the film. I always felt they were overrated. They were certainly not educated or nice individuals. Jack Martin, retired RSM Royal Regiment.
