This is one of the first DROPS deployed on OP Granby undergoing testing with US water carriers due to a shortage of UK water carridge kit. The pic was taken in either late October or early November 1990. The DROPS was operated by 5 Sqn RCT of 8 Regt RCT and they were teh forst unit to be issued with DROPS. The pic was taken outside the HQ FMA when it was based in the port clearance house on the main dock complex itself. Note that all vehicles and combats were green as no paint or combats had been delivered!
