Did you take these Photo's ?
IIRC he's a photographer. I remember some shots of ordnance left lying about during the late unpleasantness in Libya he chucked up.

I would like to know the story behind the sawn-off bolt action.

Mosin Nagant, 7.62/54? Wiki thang: Mosin
I know it's a Mosin mate, I meant was it sawn-off to aid concealment by a wrong 'un or what?

comedy head on - Maybe seeing as SOP for firing in Africa is to run into the middle of the street, loose off a full AK mag from the hip then run off someone thought a very accurate bolt action might be a tad unfair and had the butt off to level the playing field.

I did take the pics, yeah.

The bolt-action: an M95 Steyr cavalry carbine, stamped 'Budapest.' How it got there, **** knows...

I was going to complain about the state of their berets ..but then I saw the gentleman with what appears to be a pair of vivid yellow underpants on his head and then thought what's the point?

I should ******* hope so, hip knocking about action is the action of the day whilst on honeymoon, as any sane man knows that's the last time you will be able to get suuummm!

Would like seeing that Mosin fired, I bet there has been a many or barrel face interface!

Being a pedant... barrel/face interaction would require said rifle being shot, about 3' closer to the face. Refer to Steven Seagull's post.

Serious hat on - yes, the story behind the rifle would be VERY interesting.

They look quite agitated. I was in Sudan in the middle 1980's for a couple of weeks, that was enough for me. :)
More stoned than agitated, I expect... was there (Blue Nile, South Kordofan) for 2 1/2 months, the Sudanese translation of 2 weeks as it turns out :roll:

Whereabouts were you? Would be interested to know more if that's OK...

They still remember you, that's why they're agitated ;-)

The honkey photographer failed to click that the balaclava and AK meant Babu wasn't proud of his career choice and didn't want his picture taken doing it.
