  2. Is the 4th from the right Reconjohn?
     
  3. no i'm sure rj would be leading from the front and at the pace he runs about 4 miles in front.
     
  4. i'm f*cking suprised they are walking and haven't sat down on their packs asking 'weres the trucks??'
     
  5. Uphill skiing? :p
     
  6. They're of to Mickey Dee's.
    The area looks a little arid so what's with the bergen covers?

    and what about spacings??
     
  8. I thought that the USMC don't use that DPM - haven't they got pixelated (SP?) uniforms?

    Is that an old photo, or are they US Army?
     
  9. Desert cam bergen covers for a desert area? You can see from the bits of their kit that aren't covered that it's temperate cam - trying to prevent themselves from looking like a long line of bushes moving across the landscape?

    sm.
     
  10. I don't think all units as late as last year were completely transitioned over. In early 2004 the majority were still wearing the old DCUs rather than the new patterns with new units rotating in wearing the new ones.
     
  11. Man at the back - tut tut, it'll be safety catches and submarine hatches next...
     
  12. Agreed SM. With their budget perhaps they could have provided kit that covered the bergens completley. Perhaps they look like a well armed caterpillar?
