    In the opening minute or so of this video there are guys wandering around with diemacos and painted L85s. Just wondering who they are as the video did not say?

    I thought SFSG maybe. Strange as there faces are not hidden for the cameras.
     
  2. Para helmets?
    Interviews with Royal Irish?
    Lets see, couldnt be 16AA by any chance could it?
     
  3. If 16 Air Assault Bde are there, they could be members of the Pathfinder Pl.
     
  4. One of them kneeling down also has a Sig drawn...but as was said, most likely PF's

  6. 01.53 mins - R Irish soldier
     
  7. The shocking thing is that Privates payslip!£859 for a month in Helmand and we have Teachers striking over here because they think their pay is crap!Cnuts!
     
  8. It's the PF platoon sporting their recently aquired diemaco's.
     
  9. And not a droopy 'Merv Hughes' in sight, amazing.
     
  10. Got Diemacos at last. Must not have wrecked any quads recently then!!!
     
  11. They'll more than that even at lowband pay. Remember LSA/UWA allowances.
     
  12. Why do they use the Diemacos? Shouldnt they stick to the L85A2?
