If our flag touches the ground we'd have to burn it and get a new one. (at least if someone who actually cares has seen it )
Yeah, i was about to post about this myself. I know it's true for the country flaf, in our case, but i'm not sure if it's the same for colours etc. I've never seen Dutch unit banners actually touch the ground. They're lowered, but don't touch the ground.
- NZ has some pretty good gunsmiths that are quite capable, very capable in fact. They would be able to provide NZDF with an accurised SLR . It is probably home grown so to speak.
Just SLRs modded as its already been said. NZDF had SLRs into the late 80's and our navy still use them to launch lines for replien, So its likely there are still some on the books in storage. Get some with good barrels, slap a rail system and some optics on and there you go.
NZDF is under going a update program at the moment to identify among other things a "marksman rifle"
quite strange seeing a few photos I took mself and only kept in close company posted here.
Tell me about it mate, Photos I've taken have some how made it onto the Army Drive and popped up from time to time. Worst of all is when someone takes a photo of you (unkown to you) and the army decides to use it on some army publication. I remember prior to deploying having to sign something along the lines of a wavier for the Army to do what it wants with images it has of me.
