Ally image spoilt by those nobbly white legs. What happened to getting your knees brown? I know its Africa but that is taking 'playing the white man' a bit too far!
My bold .. 'cos on border patrol I normally wore long KD trousers to protect the legs against nasty vegetation/insects, see my follow on post in the Stirling thread
"That was "normal" everyday uniform, with the exception of the Bush hat which was worn on the ranges and replaced the standard peaked hat.
The kit below was a mixture of "borrowed/acquired" stuff I wore whilst actually on border patrol. An acquired Camo jacket from a former Katangese mercenary, long uniform drill trousers and a bought pair of non uniform high leg boots, the shotgun was normally the Greener S/G!
This photo was of a river patrol looking for a case of ritual murder. The informant is next to me, between the guy in civvies who was a reserve policeman whose boat e used. The African at the back was a Det. Constable in civvies, the other 2 were A/insps who were there informally to give a bit of back up, should we encounter any problems.
As you can see away from the town & in the bush our outfits were somewhat non regulation.
