Interesting pictures. Is there still a strong British influence in the Bangladeshi Army? ( I mean in so far as organisation/rank structure/dress).

Yes, there is. Bangladesh army is organized the same way as that of the British army. The armed forces of Bangladesh has military to military cooperation with the British military and that has produced quite a few good training institutions in the country. The Defence and Staff college and National Defence College are two such examples.

Bangladesh used to be part of the British Empire until 1947 (part of India back then), so it's no surprise.

Whats that rifle those birds are using, Chinese Type 68?
No, those are Chinese Type-56. Bangladesh has acquired the license to produce Type-81, which will be used to replace all Type-56 rifles within 10 years. The Ordnance factory will manufacture 100000 units in 10 years.
